It all happened on a December midnight at my chamber door. I was nearly napping, when I heard a tapping and suddenly there came a rapping on my chamber door. "This only a visitor" I thought, tapping at my chamber door and nothing more.
My heart started beating faster, hesitating about who was tapping at my chamber door. 'sir,' said I or 'madam, please forgive me I implore' But I was almost napping and then you came tapping at my chamber door. I opened the door, but there was nothing only darkness and nothing more.
Suddenly there I saw a Raven, 'prophet!' said I. A bird of evil, on the pallid bust of Pallas sitting just above my chamber door. Temper was sent or whether it was tossed to the ashore. This deserted land is enchanted, or this home by horror haunted. is there balm is Gilead? tell me! tell me! I implore. Quote the raven 'Nevermore.'
Be that word out sign of parting bird or fiend! Get thee back to the plutonian shore, leave no black plume as a token of that lie they have spoken , leave me and my loneliness unbroken! quit tapping on my chamber door. take the beak from my heart, and off my chamber door. Quoted the raven 'Nevermore'
And the raven was still sitting on my chamber door and his eyes have all seeming of demon's that is dreaming, and the lamp light reflecting on him, throws his shadow on the floor and my soul floating on then floor shall be lifted nevermore!
