The raven...

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
`'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -
Only this, and nothing more.'

  1. One of my favourite tales - happy Hallowe'en x Jane

  2. Thank you for this post. I enjoyed seeing the beautiful image and poem, very much x

  3. I loved Poe's tales as a teen, though I was somewhat pre-Punk and certainly very pre-Goth. It's the right season to read them again, methinks!

  4. Just found you via Lazy Daisy Jones. Great blog, love that poem.
