Things That Go the night!

Witches, Warlocks, and Sorcerers, too!
Inside these walls, something for you.
Spells and Potions, Magical Brews,
All up your pleasure, and make it true.

Hear me now and heed this call!
Guard the tablet lest you fall,
Keep it safe, protect this will,
For herein lies the wishing well.

The Master Story Teller

Edgar Allan Poe

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.
`'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -
Only this, and nothing more.'.........

........Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
`Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,' I said, `art sure no craven.
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore -
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'
[First published in 1845]
