The Raven by Edagar Allan Poe
it is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness
Raven of the saintly days of yore... perched above my chamber door
"tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door"
wrech i cried thy God hath lent thee- by these angles he hath thee
Once upon a midnight dreary, while i pondered weak and weary.
The Raven is used all throughout the poem to compare it to things and use it as examples.
