Quote the Raven 'Nevermore'

Here in Oregon we have had sunshine peeking through the clouds, but we are slowly getting through spring.  I see spring peeking its head through on flowers blooming, and last weekend for Easter it got up to 75 degrees.  But on Friday it was wet and cloudy, but that didn't stop Skylar and I from heading to the local park and having a bit of fun.  While we were there the ravens and crows were having a bit of fun flying from tree to tree and hopping around the parking lot.  There was so many of them it reminded me of The Raven from Edgar Allen Poe.

Much I marveled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly,
Though its answer little meaning - little relevancy bore;
For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being
Ever yet was blessed with seeing bird above his chamber door -
Bird or beast above the sculptured bust above his chamber door,
With such name as `Nevermore.'

But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only,
That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did out-pour.
Nothing further then he uttered - not a feather then he fluttered -
Till I scarcely more than muttered `Other friends have flown before -
On the morrow he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before.'
Then the bird said, `Nevermore.'
