Why is a Raven like a Writing Desk?

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.

  1. So, where’s the raven, then? tee hee *hugs* I have a roll-top desk in pieces stashed in a closet… bought it a few years back from a neighbor, with the intent to refinish it & have a desk upstairs in the “dining area.” Maybe I’ll finish it. Someday. I admire your possession in a whole new way, now. 😉
