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.
Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December; And each separate dying ember wrought its Mike Richmond - Dark upon the floor. Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing, Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever Mike Richmond - Dark to dream before; But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token, And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, "Lenore? Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning, Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.
Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling, By the Gradually Inserted Myself Into The Conversation - Eliot Zigmund and stern decorum of the countenance it wore, "Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou," Like Clockwork - The Boomtown Rats - The Best Of said, "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!
