Call this... an introduction of
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 visitor," I muttered, "tapping
at my chamber door-
Only this, and nothing more."
-- From, 'The Raven', by Edgar Allen Poe
