With Halloween just around the bend, my thoughts turn to things like poems by Poe. And while pondering what poem to use today, I was also thinking about the post I intend to write about my continued touring of London. And that post will mention the Tower of London. And the Tower of London has Ravens. And so - there you have it - the thought process that led to today's poem.
by Edgar Allen Poe
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
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."
For the rest of the poem, go here.
