Quoth the Raven “Ever More”

I lEver More Raven snow globe by Camryn Forrest Designs, Denver, Colorado 2015ike ravens. And crows. And red-winged blackbirds, teasing with a flick of color.

And I like Edgar Allen Poe’s famous poem with the haunting phrase, “Quoth the Raven, ‘Never More.’ ”

 

But I also liked the contrast of a mysterious bird bringing life to a restless heart — the flick of color in a dark landscape.

And, because I remain a romantic, the bird dropped just one letter, changing the meaning from Hopeless to Hopeful.

 

Ever More.

 

 

“The Raven” was written in 1845, a mere 170 years ago and is still disected, considered, copied and quoted.

Handpainted round wood base in shades of gray, silver and black, finished with an engraved plate “Ever More.”
