Photo of the Day – October 31, 2017

“Deep into that darkness peering…”

“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;
But the silence was unbroken, and the darkness gave no token,
And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, “Lenore!”
This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, “Lenore!”
Merely this and nothing more.”
– Edgar Allan Poe, from “The Raven”

Happy Halloween!
