A famous dark poem, written in a timeless fashion of English by Edgar Allen Poe. It needs little introduction and I could say nothing about it that could explain it better than the deep voice of Sir Christopher Lee reading “The Raven”.

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
`Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,’ I 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!’
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.’

The Raven – by Edgar Allan Poe
