rolig commented on the word kingdom by the sea
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.
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;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.
– Edgar Allan Poe, the opening stanzas of "Annabel Lee"
This poem serves as an important backdrop to Nabokov's novel Lolita.
