'Twas more than a million years ago,
    Or so it seems to me,
That I used to prance around and beau
    The beautiful Annabel Lee.
There were other girls in the neighborhood
    But none was a patch to she.

And this was the reason that long ago,
    My love fell out of a tree,
And busted herself on a cruel rock;
    A solemn sight to see,
For it spoiled the hat and gown and looks
    Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.

We loved with a love that was lovely love,
    I and my Annabel Lee,
And we went one day to gather the nuts
    That men call hickoree.
And I stayed below in the rosy glow
    While she shinned up the tree,
But no sooner up than down kerslup
    Came the beautiful Annabel Lee.

And the pallid moon and the hectic noon
    Bring gleams of dreams for me,
Of the desolate and desperate fate
    Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.
And I often think as I sink on the brink
Of slumber's sea, of the warm pink link
    That bound my soul to Annabel Lee;
And it wasn't just best for her interest
    To climb that hickory tree,
For had she stayed below with me,
    We'd had no hickory nuts maybe,
But I should have had my Annabel Lee.

                                     Stanley Huntley.
