    Eagerly I Wished The Morrow;

    This particular excerpt from the Raven actually has inspired me to no longer be eager to to postpone things. Midnight arrives and you already hope that the day is done with and another morrow occurs. This is a fallacy in life. Do not be eager for the morrow. Be prepared and...
