    This poem is great poem. When I was high school student, first time I heard this poem through radio.
    The sound and meaning are very fantastic. I wanted like this love but it was impossible in the world.
    Does anyone love so deeply, and with such despiration, nowadays.Love is deep, and true, and real, and though others CAN be loved afterwards, everlasting. Edgar Allen Poe, a writer plagued by sorrows, and my 1nd favorite poet. (Report) Reply

    So sad and poignant, but in a way, uplifting. Love is deep, and true, and real, and though others CAN be loved afterwards, everlasting. Edgar Allen Poe, a writer plagued by sorrows, and my 2nd favorite poet. (Report) Reply

    Heart rending. The love of times past. Question: Does anyone love so deeply, so constantly, and with such desparation, nowadays. (Report) Reply

    Julian. if you think Norman`s storry is shocking... on friday I bought a great new Mazda MX-5 from having earned $9333 this past 4 weeks and-a little over, $10 thousand last-month. without a doubt it is the most comfortable job I've ever had. I actually started three months/ago and almost immediately was earning at least $77 per/hr. I work through this link, , kep2.com (Report) Reply

    This poem is so magnificent and sad. I wish he was still alive. I totally love the part that reads:

    but our love it was stronger 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. (Report) Reply
