    For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
    Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
    And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
    Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
    And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
    Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride
    What an amazing poem & love to the wife! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! (Report) Reply

    I first heard of this poem in my band class. A piece of music was written about this poem, with the same sadness and intensity of the poem inside the piece of music. (Report) Reply

    Oh my gosh oh my gosh; i loved it some people think that i am too young to like things like this poem, but they don't understand that u are never too young to love something that Edgar Allen Poe wrote (and matthew gray gubler put on his website) because they don't understand what we children know and what adults don't.

    Poe has a way of making you feel the pain of his very soul, making you forget who you are. (Report) Reply
