      Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, ¶ Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore, ¶ While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, ¶ As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. ¶ ""Tis some visitor"", I muttered, ""tapping at my chamber door — ¶ Only this, and nothing more.""
