annabelle lee : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread


by Edgar Allan Poe (1849)

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. She was a child and I 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 winged 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 by night Chilling my Annabel Lee; So that her high-born kinsman 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 a cloud, 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 see 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 side of the sea.

this is the poem of annabelle lee. i was wondering... we all no that this poem is good. but i was wondering is my poem good. can you give me feed back and tell me what you think about it?

My Friend

As I open my eyes to a new day I feel yet a painful daze I cannot move my feet I cannot eat I cannot move my arms Like I have no charms When I lift my head To open my eyes I see dark from wall to wall Pain dripping from ceiling to floor Still lying there I close my eyes I see wonderful things I never seen before But when I open my eyes I see darkness and pain No where to hide Where is my pride I try to get up But I cant People are holding me down I see some people walk in the room They look like my friends I scream to them to help me But they just join the others I try to get up But they hold me down To be one of them Not allowing to be myself But no one helps me I see the door open Some body walks in the room I think hes one of them But he is not He pick every body off me He lifts me to my feet and takes my hand He guides me out of the room I feel different and am different I like the new me and the old me But what will other think I ask my self Then he specks Why do you care what people think Why you and why now I ask But he speak no more When I look in his eyes I see the pain that once filled me But when I take his hand I it goes away He took me to a better place Where the pain is gone And I live in the forever happy place Were we are both happy As we walk hand in hand Into a new happiness I never felt before He freed me For he is my friend

please tell me reall if it is good or bad. i worte my feeling and i just wanted to know if it is good.
