Unabridged Formal Poetry

Poe

The archetype of dark poetry by the master of macabre.
Read by Alex Wilson.


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…”
