That was once the explanation (as all males understand, In this country via the ocean) That the wind got here out of the cloud, Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee. yet our like it used to be more advantageous by means of a long way than the affection Of those that have been older than we— Of many a long way wiser than we— And neither the angels in Heaven above Nor the demons down lower than the ocean Can ever dissever my soul from the soul Of the gorgeous Annabel Lee, For the moon by no means beams with out bringing me desires Of the gorgeous Annabel Lee; And the celebs by no means upward thrust yet I see the brilliant eyes Of the attractive Annabel Lee; And so, the entire night-tide, I lie down by way of the part Of my darling—my darling—my existence and my bride In her sepulchre there through the ocean— In her tomb by way of the sounding sea. 1849 The Bells I Hear the sledges with the bells— Silver bells! What a global of merriment their melody foretells! How they tinkle, tinkle, tinkle, In the icy air of evening! whereas the celebs that oversprinkle All the heavens, appear to twinkle With a crystalline pride; Keeping time, time, time, In a type of Runic rhyme, To the tintinnabulation that so musically wells From the bells, bells, bells, bells, Bells, bells, bells— From the jingling and the tinkling of the bells. II Hear the mellow wedding-bells Golden bells! What an international of happiness their concord foretells! throughout the balmy air of evening How they ring out their pride! — From the molten-golden notes, And all in music, What a liquid ditty floats To the turtle-dove that listens, whereas she gloats On the moon! Oh, from out the sounding cells, What a gush of euphony voluminously wells! the way it swells! the way it dwells On the longer term! —how it tells Of the rapture that impels To the swinging and the ringing Of the bells, bells, bells— Of the bells, bells, bells, bells, Bells, bells, bells— To the rhyming and the chiming of the bells! III Hear the loud alarum bells— Brazen bells! What story of terror, now, their turbulency tells! within the startled ear of evening How they scream out their affright! an excessive amount of horrified to talk, They can in basic terms shriek, shriek, Out of music, In a clamorous beautiful to the mercy of the hearth, In a mad expostulation with the deaf and frantic hearth, Leaping larger, larger, larger, With a determined hope, And a resolute exercise Now—now to take a seat, or by no means, By the aspect of the pale-faced moon. Oh, the bells, bells, bells! What a story their terror tells Of depression! How they clang, and conflict, and roar! What a horror they outpour On the bosom of the palpitating air! but the ear, it totally is familiar with, By the twanging And the clanging, How the chance ebbs and flows; Yet, the ear extraordinarily tells, In the jangling And the wrangling, How the risk sinks and swells, By the sinking or the swelling within the anger of the bells— Of the bells— Of the bells, bells, bells, bells, Bells, bells, bells— In the clamour and the clangor of the bells!
