Nevermore

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 visiter,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door —
Only this and nothing more.”

‘The Raven’ – Edgar Allan Poe

The clock struck midnight and through my sleeping I heard a tapping at my door. I looked but nothing lay in the darkness and so I turned inside once more. To my amazement there stood Mr. Bowie whose shadow hung above my door. Then through the silence he spoke that one word that I shall hear forever more. Nevermore.

Inspired by ‘Tales of Mystery and Imagination’ – The Alan Parsons Project

    • Thank you Erga. Edgard Allan Poe wrote some great stories and poems. The black and white picture of Bowie made me think about Poe’s ‘The Raven’. Don’t know why…

    • Thank you Pam. I really liked the combination of the words and the picture. I don’t know why this picture made me think about ‘The Raven’… Glad you liked it.

      PS: Mr. Bowie woke me up last night…
