In the strangest circumstance, we meet dear Mr Poe
I knew one day I'd use your quill within this to and fro
Your face may still be hidden, but words exceed the sight
I heard the words you said to me, while in my room each night
Alas! I heard the tapping; I heard it at the door
It's taken me a lifetime to understand "Lenore"
Yet now I'm in the picture - with this unspoken pain
I think we're drawn together; we share the picture frame

I'm a bit of a poe fan myself- wasn't the raven written following the loss of his wife and children to cholera? I'd always assumed that Lenore was the name of one- or a representation of his loss. I'm not sure to be honest I've never studied his life in any detail just picked up bits along the way. I really like the dark mood you set in this piece- very reminiscient of old edgar and a nice way to signify his influence to your own writing and experiences, take care, spence
