By Edgar Allen Poe
It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNEBELLE 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 more than love-
I and my ANNABELLE LEE;
With a love that winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.
And this was the reason that, long ago,
IN thsi kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud chilling
MY beautiful ANNABELLE LEE;
So that her high-born kinsman came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.
The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me-
Yes!-that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my ANNABELLE LEE.
But our love it was stronger by far tahn the love
Of those who were older than we-
Of many far wiser thand we-
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Of the beautiful ANNEBELLE LEE.
For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful ANNEBELLE LEE;
And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes
of the beautiful ANNEBELLE LEE.
And so, all teh night-tid, I lie down by the side
Of my darling-my darling-my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea.
One of my favorite poems of his. I have a few more in the book I like. I dont know if it was worth what I paid for it. But I love going through certain poems every now and again and this is one of them. Just reading the love he had had for her is amazing. Some say Poe was crazy and had no family but you just never know with writers from this era.
I am ready to pull my hair out of my head. Its raining out today and the girls havent been outside and they are fighting like cats and dogs. I knew it was going to happen but I am ready to strangle both of them. I know its five o clock my time and I am making the girls lay down and rest. I really should have a rest time during the day earlier but havent needed one until recently. I get fustrated easily sometimes and today is one of them. But home schooling is going great for Kora. She can whip numbers off faster than her friends can even think of the problem. Its amazing. Her reading is coming along but slowly.
I have these Book It coupons I keep telling her if she can read two books by the end of the month I will take her out for a girls afternoon and we will have Pizza. But lately those havent even tempted her in reading. Instead of knowing what a word is she guesses on it. She refuses to remember her sight words and has to try and sound them out. But like I said she is getting there.
Anyway enough. I thought you would like my poem. It didnt take that long to type out either. LOL.. Catch you all tomorrow sometime.
Its about me and my family. Mainly me and the girls. I may twitter or tweet alot but its mostly thoughts and going ons here at home and thoughts about what we might be doing on weekend or our adventures. Sit down and Enjoy what you are reading.
