by Edgar Allan Poe
It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea,
But we loved with a love that was more than love—
I and my Annabel Lee—
With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsmen came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in Heaven,
Went envying her and me—
Yes!—that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my 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 feel 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 sepulchre there by the sea—
In her tomb by the sounding sea.
Many years ago a woman named Annabel Lee lived with her lover in a kingdom by the sea. They loved each other so much that the angels envied their love, so they sent a wind gust to chill Annabel. She got sick and died. Her kinsman took her body to a tomb and laid her there. But their love was stronger than the death that separated them and even angels and demons could not keep them apart. Annabel’s lover stayed by her side. He dreamed about her every night and imagined her watching him from Heaven. So he laid by her side in the tomb every night for the rest of his life.
The theme is true love never dies. Annabel's lover never really left her, even though she passed on. Their love will remain forever. The impact on the readers was If you know a little bit about Poe, you might not be surprised to hear that "Annabel Lee" is spooky and sad, and that it deals with one of the author's favorite subjects, the death of a beautiful young woman.

Theme: True Love Never Dies
The theme in this poem is true love never dies. The person narrating the poem falls in love with a young women, and even after her death is still in love with her.
He compares their love to others relationships and believes theirs is superior. He also says that nobody can break his love for Annabel Lee, Not even the angels or demons. In her tomb where Annabel rests, he accompanies her and sleeps next to her tomb.


Poe might have wrote this because himself had these feelings for another women, or to give insight on how passionate and infectious love can be for someone.
