In celebration of Edgar Allan Poe’s 203rd birthday, we bring you his literary classic – The Raven.

 

 

 

 

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.”

 

 

—Edgar Allan Poe
