The Raven #1

  Raven
Thomas Doughty, Lithograph ca.1830

Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
 In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore.
 Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;
 But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door -
 Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door -
 Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

The seventh stanza of  Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven
