Annabel Lee Artist Trading Card

Did you know that "Annabel Lee"
is the last complete poem composed
by Edgar Allen 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 . . ."

Like so many of Poe's poems,
it tells the tale of the death of a beautiful woman.

"The wind came out of the clouded night,
chilling and killing my Annabel Lee . . ."

The narrator tells of a man who
fell in love with Annabel Lee
when they were young,
and even says that this love for her
was so strong
that even angels were jealous.
What a sad love story that
remains so strong even in death!

"For the moon never beams
without bringing me dreams of
the beautiful Annabel Lee . . ."

I created these artist trading cards
for a swap this month.
Edgar Allen Poe is probably
one of my favorite poets.
