Writing 201: Poetry Potluck

Saturday brought with it a special challenge from the good people at the Daily Post: Share one of your favorite poems, written by someone other than yourself.  Being a lover of poetry, that’s a tall order for me, but I finally settled on Edgar Allan Poe’s “Annabel Lee”:

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.
