This it is and nothing more."

Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,

"Sir," said I, "or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;

*****

The Raven alone deserves all praise though the other two works are quite good as well, no doubt these works are a must read for their depth in words and rhyme, so go ahead and enjoy, preferably with a sherry
