RAVENS NEVERMORE... SPA's RAVENS & BLACK BIRDS CHALLENGE...


 Once upon a midnight dreary 
While I pondered weak and weary 
Over a poem the world has loved forevermore. 
Suddenly there came a squawking 
A dark and scary flocking 
Of Ravens through my chamber door. 
Only this and nothing more. 
 
It was in a bleak October 
And I swear that I was sober 
While I watched said Ravens dancing 
Dancing about my chamber floor 
Then the birds said “Nevermore.” 
 
All at once my teeth were gnashing 
Glass was breaking, things were crashing 
Crashing on my chamber floor 
 ’Tis the wind and nothing more!” 

 Presently my soul grew stronger 
I couldn’t take this any longer 
I sought the cause of my plight 
And though it took most all the night 
I found the answer I was hope’n 
Lenore had left the windows open. 
 Merely this and nothing more.
