It was many and many a year ago,

    It is beautiful because it is a bit twisted and disturbing, not in spite of it. Anyways, the ghost in my house liked it when I read it aloud... (Report) Reply

    Vic Bassetti, with poetry you have to think outside the box. It does not literally mean that a man is lying down beside his dead wife. It is all about interpretation. (Report) Reply

    Everyone says how beautiful they think this poem is but if find it more twisted and disturbing. The guy that Poe is writing about is literally laying next to his rotting dead wife in the closed space of the tomb... (Report) Reply

    I've used this poem by Edgar Allan Poe in my declamation during my second year in high school... and I won the championship. That's why this poem is something really memorable for me. I love how much the author remembers Annabel... ^_^ (Report) Reply

    Edgar Allan Poe left us here “many and many a year ago, ” (160 years) in our poetic “kingdom by the sea, ” to dream, as he did, of our “Annabels.”

    What a gift we have ever, that none can dissever, our souls from the ones that we love.
    We have Poe and Annabel giving us beautiful
    Dreams as we continue to love.

    I am inspired by Edgar Allan Poe and many others, such as William Shakespeare, Rudyard Kipling, and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who wrote iambic lines.

    Thirty-seven years ago I wrote: “It’s this bound verse that captured me;
    Poetic pen and all.
    It’s why I write iambic lines
    And have myself a ball.”

    I was gone from Poem Hunter for much of the past three years because of health issues. I’m back now, approaching age 87 next month, more enthusiastic than ever. (Report) Reply

    Poem is an expression of freedon... the grammer doesnt have to be correct... its a choice of the poet... so there is no 'correctness' (Report) Reply

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
