This poem spoke to me. I'm only in 7th grade and I like it A LOT. At first
he wanted the raven then he actually thought that it was a demon or devil.
All the bird spoke "Nevermore"

Elaine-that is quite a weird experience you had!
I have no weird experiences to talk about, just the fact that this is my
first time reading "The Raven" as well. There was a commenter a while
back(Yes, I read all of the comments) that told people to use spellcheck if
they were going to post comments. She should think about heeding her own
advice. Just a thought. Anyway, this is a very well-written poem-it's gr8.
By the way, commenter 57 (Kyle from the U.S.)-your message is cute. I
wonder if you're cute in real life. Anyway, as was said before, Poe was a
master at his craft.

Have just read this poem for the very first time at age 47.My uncle who is
a very spiritual person told me to read this poem after an incident I had
this very morning.In Australia we call these birds "Crows" I was in my
study at home on my PC & heard a loud tapping noise at the window thAT WAS
2 feet away from me. seeing my Daughter was sitting only feet away from me
on the other side of the room & now knowing she was not outside playing a
trick on me I pulled back the curtain. Outside the window on top of a
container was a very large Crow & it was looking directly in through the
window at me as if knowing I was in the room & was waiting for me to pull
back thr curtain.I called for my Daughter to come & see ( 30 yrs old ) &
she could not beleive it either. She spoke to him & he was going on in bird
talk back at her but then I spoke asking "what is the matter" every time I
spoke he moved closer & closer to the window until if it had not been for
the insect screens on the window we could have touched him. The look was
very direct at us & he was not like a usual bird that flitters around etc
he was very calm & sat talking to us for about 2 minutes gazing straight at
us at all times but even my Daughter said that even though he would
acknoweldge her when she spoke it was as if it was me he had come to talk
to. When he seemed to be finished speaking he jusy calmly took flight!
I have over many years in Australia heard Aboriginal people say that the
Crow if it appears before you or comes to you it is a sign of a death or
some type of bad happenings. Does anyone know what does all this mean !
Please I will wait to hear from you!!!!!
