This storyboard does not have a description.
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—
This widower, Amston, whose wife has died was about to fall asleep until he heard someone knock at his door
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door— Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door— Perched, and sat, and nothing more
When Amston opened the door a raven flew in, sat still, and did nothing else.
Ghastly grim and ancient Raven wandering from the Nightly shore— Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night’s Plutonian shore!” Quoth the Raven, “Nevermore.”
Amston asks the raven, "Why are you here?" To Amston's surprise, the raven reply's with "Nevermore".
Amston is angered at this mysterious raven. And yells at them, "Why are you here, are you a demon sent from hell?! Are you the devil himself?! Tell me your true purpose!" But the raven only replies with "Nevermore".
Desolate, yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted— On this home by Horror haunted—tell me truly, I implore— Is there—is there balm in Gilead?—tell me—tell me, I implore!” Quoth the Raven, “Nevermore.”
And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor; And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor Shall be lifted—nevermore!
Amston's mind is at it's limits and can't bare the raven anymore. While the raven remains in its statue like posture and watches Amston suffer.
The theme of this story is to not dwell on loss. And accept when someone and something is gone.
Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn, 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.”
