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.'"

I can't help but think of that simpsons episode when anyone mentions the raven.
Is that even a raven?

nope it's a crow.
but the raven's a poem by edgar allan poe. and i've quoted the first paragraph in the middle bit there. it's one of my favourites.

i am not familiar with this simpsons episode, sorry. ;P

i love this poem, it's simply timeless. I never tire of it.

jayce said...

yeah, i know it's a poem by edgar allan poe hehe.
it is satirised in a halloween episode of the simpsons.
bart is pie and homer is the crow.
it's actually pretty good.
