As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.\\*
“’Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—\\*
Only this and nothing more.”

I would like the Raven title be aligned to the left with the poem's verses, on both left and right pages.

I ultimately managed to make it work, thanks to @egreg's suggestion:

\renewcommand{\poemtitlefont}{\raggedright\normalfont\large\bfseries\hspace{\leftmargin}}
