The Ghost of Violin Annie

Annie was a little girl in our town who died in the late 1800's of a tragic childhood illness. And even though her father was a doctor he could not save her. She was dark haired and had beautiful soft brown eyes, with skin as white as milk.
Annie was a violinist and it had been rumored she was destined for greatness. She is buried in a very Gothic cemetery. Her tombstone was hand carved in Italy out of the finest marble. Her grief stricken father would spare no expense . And at midnight Annie begins to play.

It makes my heart sad that her Father was so grief stricken. I cannot imagine losing a child.

The nice part and I wish her Father knew this, but forever people will remember his Annie because of him commissioning this monument.

Thank you Nita for sharing this.

Your telling of ...
Violin Annie.
Concerts given at midnight.
Oh how I love this!

I imagine she plays for her father.
I picture him smiling under the moon.

Now I will open the windows
in summer for the breeze to bring the music
through the curtains. So Annie can come inside
here too.

Thank you!
