  • Artist Info: ANNABEL LEE<br />
    <br />
    It was many and many a year ago,<br />
    In a kingdom by the sea,<br />
    That a maiden there lived whom you may know<br />
    By the name of Annabel Lee;<br />
    And this maiden she lived with no other thought<br />
    Than to love and be loved by me.<br />
    <br />
    I was a child and she was a child,<br />
    In this kingdom by the sea:<br />
    But we loved with a love that was more than love - <br />
    I and my Annabel Lee;<br />
    With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven<br />
    Coveted her and me.<br />
    <br />
    And this was the reason that, long ago,<br />
    In this kingdom by the sea,<br />
    A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling<br />
    My beautiful Annabel Lee;<br />
    So that her high-born kinsmen came<br />
    And bore her away from me,<br />
    To shut her up in a sepulchre<br />
    In this kingdom by the sea.<br />
    <br />
    The angels, not half so happy in heaven,<br />
    Went envying her and me - <br />
    Yes! that was the reason (as all men know,<br />
    In this kingdom by the sea)<br />
    That the wind came out of the cloud one night,<br />
    Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.<br />
    <br />
    But our love it was stronger by far than the love<br />
    Of those who were older than we - <br />
    Of many far wiser than we - <br />
    And neither the angels in heaven above,<br />
    Nor the demons down under the sea,<br />
    Can ever dissever my soul from the soul<br />
    Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;<br />
    <br />
    For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams<br />
    Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;<br />
    And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes<br />
    Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;<br />
    And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side<br />
    Of my darling -my darling -my life and my bride,<br />
    In the sepulchre there by the sea - <br />
    In her tomb by the sounding sea.<br />
    <br />
    ~Edgar Allan Poe~ <3
