The Raven Cries

Ashen face

In the raven’s embrace,

Finally, he dies.

Hark! The raven cries.

“Nevermore, nevermore,

To miss Lenore!”

Carrying him, the raven soars,

Towards Plutonian shores.

 

About the post:

I just read “The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe and couldn’t help but whip up a little verse inspired by the poem. “The Raven” touches upon a supernatural theme, the narrator lamenting over the death of his love, Lenore and visited by a talking raven at night.

    I wanted to celebrate “World Poetry Day” and what better way than to indulge in some poetry 🙂 I read “The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe for the first time and found myself weaving a verse soon after. This was originally posted on my poetry blog today
