"The Raven" tells of a talking raven's mysterious visit to a distraught lover, tracing the man's slow fall into madness. The lover, often identified as being a student, is lamenting the loss of his love, Lenore. Sitting on a bust of Pallas, the raven seems to further instigate his distress with its constant repetition of the word "Nevermore".

We did this for our show theme for my marching band season last year
This poem and Anabelle Lee are my favorites by Poe. I love the reading on Youtube that Christopher Lee does of "The Raven". He really gives justice to the genius written in these words.
Ummm I pretty sure there is supposed to be more than a single line

Beautifully haunting giving chills as I read this magnificently crafted literature
So I'm not the only one to see only a one line story... am I going crazy?
