        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 visiter," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door--
        Only this and nothing more."

        Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December;
        And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
        Eagerly I wished the morrow;--vainly I had sought to borrow
        From my books surcease of sorrow--sorrow for the lost Lenore--
        For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore--
        Nameless here for evermore.

        And the silken, sad, uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
        Thrilled me--filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
        So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating
        "'Tis some visiter entreating entrance at my chamber door--
        Some late visiter entreating entrance at my chamber door;--
        This it is and nothing more."

        Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
        "Sir," said I, "or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;
        But the fact is I was napping, and so gently you came rapping,
        And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door,
        That I scarce was sure I heard you"--here I opened wide the door;--
        Darkness there and nothing more.

        Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
        Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;
        But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token,
        And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, "Lenore?"
        This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, "Lenore!"--
        Merely this and nothing more.

        Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning,
        Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.
