    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.

    Edgar Allan Poe is by far one of my favourite poets. This poem is one of the first I heard of, and the one that sat into my head the fastest. It's just lovely. (Report) Reply

    I once pondered the point of reading and writing poetry, and it is this. YOU CAN'T RAP. (Report) Reply

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

    Poe is a great poet, but he is also very depressing at times. (Report) Reply

    Most of Edgar Allan Poe's poems are about loved ones dying and being killed because of what happened to him in his own life. He lost his wife whom he was madly in love with, and he's been going crazy over the loss of his wife. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful and mysterious. The language, again, carries the poem. (Report) Reply

    Death lays its icy hands many times on the ones we cherish most. Why won't you take us with them too? Thank you poet. This is for all my Annabel Lees. You may be gone but are never over. (Report) Reply

    I never believed I could have a favorite poem until I came across this one a couple months back by complete incident.

    Needless to say, it stole my heart and wound my soul. There will be no other poem for me. (Report) Reply

    Poe's works are always breath-taking! They speak of so much of his life. If only there were others like him, but that is what makes him a legend! (Report) Reply

    All of his poems have such a wonderful FEEL to them. No matter how morbid, they're so... moving. And truly, truly beautiful. He chose his words so masterfully, and put together perfect rhythms. What an inspirational poet. (Report) Reply
