Because Poe wrote on both. Sam Lloyd.
They both have inky quills. (unknown)
Because it can produce a few notes, tho they are very flat; and it is nevar put with the wrong end in front!. Lewis Carroll.
Because it’s satisfying to be in the presence of both. Me.
I have the use of a lovely antique writing desk thanks to my parents. It’s a happy little desk, about three feet wide, with a fold out writing surface, spindly long legs, and a number of little nooks and crannies within it for my ink and pens. It inspires correspondence and brings a sense of peace to me when I sit down to it of a morning. I have paired it with an antique wooden chair with a soft cushion on it and it sits beside my bed providing constant temptation for letter writing.
