The Raven

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." - Edgar Allen Poe

Tastefully spooky!! Wonder what ole Edgar would think of all the mileage his poem and image have gotten through the years!

Edgar Allen Poe always scared me as a kid and he's still a bit creepy!!
