Quoth the Raven! Just Once, Evermore!

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.

Alas,

Poe’s oft-repeated theme

emphasizes

the importance of memory,

because life

consists of continuous loss.

UVA English professor Jerome McGann features 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 …

Nevermore!?

…….

No!

Just

Once

Evermore!
