Why can't I just forget about losing my beloved Lenore while reading?
Tis some visitor tapping at my chamber door- only this, and nothing more.
Knock. Knock. Knock
At midnight, on a bleak December night, a man was sitting in his chamber. In his chair, he was reading, but was almost asleep.
The man who was sitting in his chamber, was trying to forget the loss of his maiden named Lenore. He suddenly heard a faint tapping at his chamber door.
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!
The man worked up the courage to open his chamber door but saw nothing but darkness. He called out to Lenore. Only an echo responded to him. He then heard a louder tapping from the window. When he opened the window, a raven flew in and perched above his chamber door, on his bust of Pallas. The man became happy that only a bird was tapping on his window and that such a thing would happen to him. When he asked its name, the raven said, "Nevermore".
After the man became sad that the raven would soon leave him, and he would be lonely again, the bird said "nevermore". The man soon asked the raven if he would ever escape from his pain of losing Lenore. The raven then said "Nevermore". The man became extremely angry with the bird, which he believed was evil. After that, the old man asked if he would ever see Lenore again. The bird said " Nevermore". The man's anger rose.
Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn it shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore!
When the man told the raven to leave, it replied by saying "Nevermore".
The raven never left the man and is still sitting on the bust of Pallas. The man realized that he could never escape from the raven.
