Dear Friends,

Welcome to the ultimate challenge of your life.Wink

Your job is to read this wonderful poem and continue on with it, adding at least one more stanza.
Remember, it has to be in the same tone. Maintaining the romance on!Embarrassed j/k:

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.

She was a child and I 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--
With a love that the winged 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 by night
   Chilling my Annabel Lee;
So that her high-born kinsman came
   And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulcher
   In this kingdom by the sea.

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 a cloud, 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,
   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;
And the stars never rise but I see 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 her sepulcher there by the sea--
   In her tomb by the side of the sea.

(c)Edgar Allan Poe

So what are you waiting for now?

Put your thinking caps on and get down to work.WinkTongue

Then one night as I railed at the angels and me
Courage in the form of the spirit of Annabel Lee
Called me to save her from live without love
By sending me her missive through a beautiful, gentle dove.

The missive said: Beloved, I am locked away so all cannot see
But I know that all you perceive are the memories of you and your faithful Annabel Lee.
I await your courageous and fearless action
And a lifetime of love from your Annable Lee will be my reaction

So save me, so save, so save me, so save me.
Do you not miss your Annabel Lee?
I am far, far away high up, locked away on a mountain.
But hope of my rescue by your hands springs in my breast like a fountain...
