How Poe's raven learned to speak.






Merlin hovers beside the castle in the fog

Near his room in the north tower

Choosing the form to complete his spell

Dark prince will soon feel his power



Raven in the light of the sun

Dark Knight when the moon is full

Craves Crown Princess Aurora

Stole the magic and broke Marlin’s rule



Dark heart has been revealed

Stolen incantations, grave mistake

You’ll never see my punishment come

Only the change when your bones brake



Be on guard dark prince, protect princess fair

As she rides each day through wooded glen

I cast this spell in the midnight hour

Now you will suffer for your grievous sin



A raven you’ll be forevermore

Dark knight no longer in light of day

Under the full moon, dark prince you’ll be

True form trapped beneath feathers, you’ll stay



On moonlit nights, I’ll hear your cry

Daily you’ll knock on my chamber door

Begging forgiveness, begging to return

My answer will be Nevermore, Nevermore


Your dark heart will remain in Raven’s Claw

Identify lost in the morning sun’s rays

Try as you may to escape my spell

A raven you’ll be till the end of your days
