NevermoreAlone upon the threshold of my doorOf individual life, I shall commandThe uses of my soul, nor lift my handSerenely in the sunshine as before,Without the sense of that which I forbore--Thy touch upon the palm. The widest landDoom takes to part us, leaves thy heart in mineWith pulses that beat double. What I doAnd what I dream include thee, as the wineMust taste of its own grapes. And when I sueGod for myself, He hears that name of thine,And sees within my eyes the tears of two."

And when Gillian vanished in a Dover wood, she took with her all but the husk of Godric's joy."

8. "The End of the Raven"On a night quite unenchanting, when the rain was downward slantingI awakened to the ranting of the man I catch mice for.Tipsy and a bit unshaven, in a tone I found quite craven,Poe was talking to a Raven perched above the chamber door.'Raven's very tasty,' thought I, as I tiptoed o'er the floor.'There is nothing I like more.'[...]Still the Raven never fluttered, standing stock-still as he utteredIn a voice that shrieked and sputtered, his two cents' worth -- 'Nevermore.'While this dirge the birdbrain kept up, oh, so silently I crept up,Then I crouched and quickly leapt up, pouncing on the feathered bore.Soon he was a heap of plumage, and a little blood and gore --Only this and not much more."
Author: Henry N. Beard
9. "The tide rises, the tide falls, The twilight darkens, the curlew calls; Along the sea-sands damp and brown The traveller hastens toward the town, And the tide rises, the tide falls. Darkness settles on roofs and walls, But the sea, the sea in the darkness calls; The little waves, with their soft, white hands, Efface the footprints in the sands, And the tide rises, the tide falls. The morning breaks; the steeds in their stalls Stamp and neigh, as the hostler calls; The day returns, but nevermore Returns the traveller to the shore, And the tide rises, the tide falls."
Author: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

11. "Sing a song of suspense in which the players die.Four and twenty ravens in an Edgar Allan Pie.When the pie was broken, the ravens couldn't sing.Their throats had been sliced open by Stephen, the new King.The King was in his writing house, stifling a laughWhile his queen was in a tizzy of her bloody Lovecraft.When the dead maid got the garden for her rank as royal whore,King's shovel made it double and he married nevermore."
Author: Jessica McHugh

Today's Quote

Luisa, es peligroso pasar días enteros con la cabeza abatida sobre el pecho, las manos inertes, la mirada vaga; es peligroso buscar las avenidas sombrías y no participar de las diversiones que regocijan los corazones de las las jóvenes; es peligroso, Luisa, escribir con a punta del pie; como sueles hacer, sobre la arena, letras que, por más que te apresures a borrarlas; siempre aparecen por debajo del talón, principalmente cuando esas letras se asemejan más a una L que a una B; es peligroso, en fin, forjarse allá en la mente mil extrañas ilusiones, fruto de la soledad y de los dolores de cabeza; esas ilusiones socavan las mejillas de una pobre muchacha al mismo tiempo que su cerebro, y no es cosa rara ver en esas ocasiones a una persona de amable y risueño trato volverse taciturna y fastidiosa, y a la de más talento convertida en una imbécil."
Author: Alexandre Dumas
