There are two versions, especially for the closing line. Most prefer Poe's original line "by the sounding sea" which Poe changed to "by the side of the sea" for scansion and possibly to emphasize the monotonous uneding rembrance instead of musical closure.

A great audio rendition of the poem with interactive sound effect modifications is at knowingpoe/thinkport.com.
