"Nevermore"

Then, upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking
Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore -
What this grim, ungainly, gaunt, and ominous bird of yore
Meant in croaking `Nevermore.'

But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only,
That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.
Nothing further then he uttered - not a feather then he fluttered -
Till I scarcely more than muttered `Other friends have flown before -
On the morrow he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before.'
Then the bird said, `Nevermore.'

"And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, STILL is sitting, on that palid bust of Pallus just above my chamber door. And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon that is dreaming, and the lamp light o'er him streaming casts his shadow on the floor."

Edgar Allen Poe
