Happy Belated Edgar! Sorry I missed your 200th birthday on the 19th. I was too busy celebrating my daughter's 3rd birthday on the same day.
In honor of your birthday I created a "Nevermore Tavern" sign with one of your favorite animals, a raven. It also has a little tavern painted on it too, thought you'd like that.
The US Post Office thought you were cool enough to issue a stamp on the 16th.
I've bought a few sheets but I'm told they won't last long so I better go out and get some more. There have been celebrations in all the cities you once lived from New York to Baltimore. So sorry I didn't make it to one of your parties. I would have loved to toast to your mad genius. Some people even made very cool websites for your birthday like this one: EA Poe 200 Project.
Happy Belated Edgar! They broke the mold when you were made!
"I would define, in brief, the poetry of words as the rhythmical creation of Beauty."
