    • 1845 February, Edgar Allan Poe, “The Raven”, The American Review, volume 1: 
      But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only / That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour. / Nothing farther 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." / Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."
