"My favorite story was The Tell-Tale Heart because it was explaining that he was not a crazy person. This kinda reminds me of people who always assume something first without knowing it's true."

Being almost a goth is awesome!!!<br /><br /><b>[Reply from Robert Giordano]</b><br />Although some web sites credit "Come Little Children" to Edgar Allan Poe, I cannot find proof of this in any of my reference materials or books. The poem was made into a song in the movie <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0107120/">Hocus Pocus</a> and was sung by Sarah Jessica Parker. I believe the poem was written by <a href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0002201/">John Debney</a>, who was the composer for Hocus Pocus."
