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.”
— from The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe

“Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,” I
said, “art sure no craven, Ghastly grim and
ancient raven wandering from the Nightly shore —
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night’s Plutonian shore!”
Quoth the raven, “Nevermore.”

A Christmas Raven As Sun, In The Canyon   1 comment

Once upon a morning sunny,

I pondered the “Tucson blue” sky,

On the day before Christmas.

No time for a quaint and curious

Volume of forgotten lore,

I watch a black as the sun raven

Steered the gusty canyon winds,

Soaring up over the nearby ridge,

Suddenly entering a deep dive,

With a croak and deep, gurgling call —

“Only this and nothing more.”

Quoth the Raven, “Nevermore.”   2 comments

“And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting 
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door; 
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming, 
And the lamplight o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor; 
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor 
Shall be lifted – nevermore!”

  — from The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe
