"Annabel Lee"
by Edgar Allan Poe

It was many and many a year ago,
     In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden lived whom you may know
     By the name of ANNABEL LEE; -
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
     Than to love and be loved by me.


I was a child and She was a child,
     In this kingdom by the sea,
But we loved with a love that was more than love -
     I and my ANNABEL LEE -
With a love that the winged seraphs of Heaven
     Coveted her and me.
