"The Raven" by Edgar Allan PoeComic by Srilekha Mamidala
Surely, surely that is something at my window lattice. Let me see, then, what the rat is, and this mystery explore. Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore; 'Tis the wind and nothing more!

Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou, art sure no craven, ghastly grim and ancient Raven wandering from the Nightly shore. Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!
Other friends have flown before. On the morrow he will leave me, as my Hopes have flown before.
Is there — is there balm in Gilead? — tell me — tell me, I implore!
Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend! Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore! Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken! Leave my loneliness unbroken! — quit the bust above my door! Take thy beak from out my heart, and take ty form from off my door.
