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.

Regarding " The Raven, " credited by historians to Edgar Allan Poe, I have a great deal of evidence that the real author was Mathew Franklin Whittier, younger brother of poet John Greenleaf Whittier.
when your doing homework and forgot everything about the poem...so you had to look it up...
Edgar Allan Poe - so unique. I have memorized the second verse of this poem. Don't know why only the second verse, but so what. Hard to find poetry nowadays that can compare; that is, if you can find any decent poetry at all.
