Go away you “Nevermore”

by Gurpreet


Worn and weary by the day
as I remember 11th may
held up by the fluttering rap
I heard a familiar tap
while I dreaded in my haven
did I expect a dark raven
casting shadows on the floor
there’s someone at my door

Who? said I in the gray
quivering sound overlay
but making move thereby
and trust me there was no reply
so much that I did deplore
but I expected no Lenore
and I afraid of Nevermore
anxiously waiting at my door

Tis was years and years ago
once I read Edgar poe
while there was I without a clue
the darkness of the night grew
the tapping did not seem to cease
I shook woke my caprice
I flung opened my wooden door
