The raven by Edgar Allan Poe.
While Edgar is mouring, he heard a knock on the door but no one was there. "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.”
Edgar asks if he will ever see his wise again, and the raven replied "nevermore." "It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore— Clasp a rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore.” Quoth the Raven, “Nevermore.”
The narrator gets angry when he hears what the raven says and he yells at the bird to leave. The raven replies with "nevermore" "Leave my loneliness unbroken!—quit the bust above my door! Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!” Quoth the Raven, “Nevermore.”
The raven ends up never leaving. "And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting"
The theme of "The Raven" is loss and forever grieving. Edgar Allan Poe is mourning the loss of his wife, Lenore.
