|It isn't |
if i neither
know who he is
or what he
has done !
|We haven't seen that in school yet and...|
|"Prophet!' said I, `thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil!|
|By that Heaven that bends above us - by that God we both adore -|
Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn,
|It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels named Lenore -|
Clasp a rare and radiant maiden, whom the angels named Lenore?'
|Quoth the raven, `Nevermore'."|
|At first immaculate white,|
cursed by the gods they became black
they are beautiful birds ...
