Quoth the Raven, Nevermore!

In Edger Allen Poe’s 18-stanza poem,

“The Raven”

the line,

“Quoth the Raven, Nevermore,”

comes in

toward the middle

and gets repeated,

or the word “nevermore”

gets repeated

in the subsequent stanzas.


Poe’s oft-repeated theme


the importance of memory,

because life

consists of continuous loss.

UVA English professor Jerome McGann features Edgar Allan Poe’s well-known, spooky poem, “The Raven,” in his new book.

“The Poet Edger Allen Poe: Alien Angel”


Seems that everyday

I get up thinking

‘what’s the use …

what’s it all about …

why write? …

who really cares?

But then I just compose another post …

submit it on the host …

I just

Quoth the Raven

Never, Ever …

No …

    1. When I feel down and ready to give up I take a 20-30 minute brisk walk. Most of my posts are written during such walks!

      I also like to listen to inspirational music like the Angel City Chorale and other such groups!

      Give them a listen. They are worth it!


      1. I do know I should walk more…but after 5 falls last year, I’m skittish about leaving my house unless it’s necessary (groceries, mail). Oh, and there’s that treadmill hidden beneath boxes in the bedroom…don’t you dare even comment about that! 🙂 I’ll check out the Angel City Chorale–sounds good, thanks!! Have a blessed week 🙂
