Male voice reading a verse from Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven [1845 so it's out of copyright] - a nice Gothic theme which many Freesounders seem to like.

Dynamic mic and PC. Unedited. Slight EQ and compression.

Text:
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.

    Hello. I am very thankful. I gladly made a small tribute to Poe. You can watch it here:
