April 18 Birthday: Ann Leah Fox

illus15Haunted Ground

And slight, withal, may be the things which bring
Back on the heart the weight which it would fling
Aside forever—it may be a sound,
A tone of music, summer eve, or spring,
A flower—the wind—the ocean—which shall wound
Striking the electric chain, wherewith we are darkly bound.

–Lord Byron

Ann Leah Fox was a medium who claimed this poem came to her during her work.
