Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
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.”
Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;
Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately Raven of the saintly days of yore;
But the Raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only
That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.
Nothing farther then he uttered—not a feather then he fluttered
Then the bird said “Nevermore.”
-The Raven, Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe was known for his poetry and short stories, particularly his tales of mystery and the macabre. We have been long time fans of his work and this is what inspired us to create this collection.
Dark themes and gothic elements are the keys to this collection, all inspired by the great works of Edgar Allan Poe....
