The was dark the wind was raw out o the moors arose the sound of  raven’s craw. The moon lit the path with silver glow and shadows danced along the hedgerow.

There she stood tall and dark, rake thin, and pale and her eyes held no spark, of life. Then came a fluttering of wings, bright of eye , sharp of claws and black shiny beaks to tear at things.

There stands the grave stone stark and cold she walks toward it her wings afold. Her trusty familiars close by her side drenched in the angry tears she cried.

The grave is open there is nothing there.! Stopped in shock she stands and stares. In rage her huge wings she flexes high and from her mouth an anguished cry issues forth for all to hear lightening flashes as a storm draws near!

Rolling in grief longing for what she had had before, pounding on the empty tomb’s floor!I need to see him I need his touch once more I want him back how things were before! With black wings high and head inclined the raven open his beak and with mighty  craw out came the words NEVERMORE!
