All for the Love of Annabel Lee

Edgar Allen Poe’s “Annabel Lee” told from the perspective of the angels

We looked down from the heavens,
At the kingdom by the sea
We looked at the love
The love of Annabel Lee

We looked down and were envious
For no one had a love greater than we
But the love of Annabel Lee

We sent a chilling wind out of the clouds
And the chilling wind made us proud
Because it would be killing
Killing the love of Annabel Lee

The chilling wind killed Annabel Lee
But the love did not die you see
For this love was more than the love
The love of Annabel Lee

For it wasn’t just Annabel’s love
It was the love of the man that she loved
And even though we killed Annabel Lee
The love lived on in the heart of the man by the sea

Now the man wishes for his own chilling wind
So that they might reunite again
But if he should die we know what he’ll gain
Thus endless nights at her sepulcher, distraught and in pain
We gave him the curse of eternity
All for the love of Annabel Lee
