    Sing woe, and alas is me!
    And the Raven's couch is spread with weeds,
    High on the hollow tree;
    And the Raven himself, telling his beads
    In penance for his past misdeeds,
    Upon the top I see.

And still the Raven, never flitting,
Still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas
Just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming
Of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamplight o'er him streaming
Throws his shadow on the floor,
And my soul from out that shadow,
That lies floating on the floor,
Shall be lifted--nevermore.

The raven once in snowy plumes was drest,
White as the whitest dove's unsullied breast,
Fair as the guardian of the Capitol,
Soft as the swan; a large and lovely fowl
His tongue, his prating tongue had changed him quite
To sooty blackness from the purest white.

(Curse on his ill-betiding croak)
Bodes me no good.
