A Bit of Culture!

 Morning All from a Scared Momma today. My Big Boy is off to the Dentist at the moment with My Mum as I am dental phobic. He is getting his main brace fitted so I thought I would come on here to stop me pacing the floor!! (Honestly thats what I did last week when he was getting his last 2 baby teeth out!)
So Culture you ask. Well I have used this Sentiment which you can get free from Raindrop Echo on Sentimental Sundays. 
I wondered which of Poe's works it came from and found it was a very moving poem called Annabel Lee. Will pop it on at the bottom of this post of you.

Annabell Lee By Edgar Allan 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.
And this maiden she lived with no other thought         5
    Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she 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,  10
With a love that the wingèd 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, chilling  15
    My beautiful Annabel Lee,
So that her high-born kinsmen came
    And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
    In this kingdom by the sea.  20

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 the cloud one night,  25
    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,  30
    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;  35
And the stars never rise, but I feel 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 the sepulchre there by the sea,  40
    In her tomb by the sounding sea.
