A very strange question, indeed. Poe used the word "implore" in his well-known poem "The Raven". Note that he used the same word in two of his prose-tales, too, viz. "The Oblong Box", and "The Cask of Amontillado". I cannot tell you more for the moment, but perhaps try to find the Pollin Dictionnary of "Words in Poe's Works", a very effective tool, I think, for a sport of this kind. If I remember well, this "index" is made only from the texts included in the Mabbott three-volumes edition of Poe's "Poems, Tales and Sketches". I know that a new "Concordance" volume of words in Poe's Poetry has rather recently been issued (by a Lady), thus "out-dating" the older classic "1965(?)-Booth" one. I have not yet seen it. Good luck! Yours sincerely, Raven's Shade (Belgium).
