    The Poe Toaster
    Since 1949, on the night of the anniversary of Poe’s birth, a mysterious stranger has entered this cemetery and left as tribute a partial bottle of cognac and three roses on Poe’s grave. The identity of the stranger, referred to affectionately as the Poe Toaster, is unknown. The significance of cognac is uncertain as it does not feature in Poe’s works as would, for example, amontillado. The presumption for the three roses is that it represents the three persons whose remains are beneath the monument: Poe, his mother-in-law (Maria Clemm) and his wife Virginia. Out of respect, no attempt is made to stop or hinder him. Several of the bottles of cognac from prior years are kept at the Baltimore Poe House and Museum.

    I love the works of Poe. I just thought that it was a funny concept, an age enhanced picture of someone 200 years old. I post last week by Linda90210 got me reading his poetry again.
