The Complete Stories and Poems - Edgar Allan Poe

30 Day Challenge: Day 17 - Favorite Quote from your favorite book

 

Going to do this one a little different and put in a favorite quote from one of my favorite poems instead.

 

I love these last two verses from Edgar Allan Poe's Annabel Lee

"But our love it was stronger by far than the love

Of those who were older than we --

Of many far wiser than we --

And neither the angels in Heaven above

Nor the demons down under the sea

Can ever dissever my soul from the soul

Of the beautiful Annabel Lee --

 

For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams

Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;

And the stars never rise but I see 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

In her sepulcher there by the sea --

In her tomb by the side of the sea."
