I hear the tapping at my door,
Whispers in the dark of night
And tiny scratches from the floor;
A sound that I have heard before,
A movement that eludes my eye.
I hear the tapping at my door.
The lapping of the Styx's shore
In the umbra of forgotten light
And tiny scratches from the floor
That chill my heart like "Nevermore";
The gnashing teeth that long to bite.
I hear the tapping at my door…
My heart beats faster from the horror
Of the nameless, faceless fright
And tiny scratches from the floor.
My mind gives way to utter torture
And though I've yet to glimpse a sight,
I hear the tapping on my door
And tiny scratches from the floor…
("Nevermore" from Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven)
