child

my favorite poem of Poe’s
from the limited number I’ve read
is the one about
Annabel Lee,

about how he was a child
and she was a child
in this kingdom by the sea
and Annabel Lee
lived to love and be loved
by none other than he

I love that poem
about Annabel Lee and he
and the sea and
how the seraphs became
jealous of their love
and took her away
and then oh, how miserable
was he

but even the boundaries
of earth and heaven
could not keep them
separate

so great
was this love
shared by two children
in that kingdom
by the sea
so that even after death
she visited his dreams on moonbeams
and never far from
his heart was she.
