Edgar Alan Po – Anabel Li

U carstvu na žalu sinjega mora –
pre mnogo leta to bi –
življaše jednom devojka lepa
po imenu Anabel Li;
i samo joj jedno beše na umu:
to da se volimo mi.

U carstvu na žalu sinjega mora
deca smo bili mi,
al’ volesmo se više no iko
ja i Anabel Li,
ljubavlju s koje su patili žudno
nebeski anđeli svi.

I zato, u carstvu na morskome žalu,
pradavno ovo se zbi:
poduhnu vetar noću sa neba,
sledi mi Anbel Li;
i dođoše da je od mene odnesu
njezini rođaci svi,
u grob na morskome je spustiše žalu
da večni sanak sni.

Anđele zavist je morila što su
tek upola srećni ko mi:
da! zato samo (kao što znaju
u onome carstvu svi)
poduhnu vetar s neba i sledi
i ubi mi Anabel Li.

Al’ mi nadjačasmo ljubalju one
što stariji behu no mi –
što mudriji behu no mi –
i slabi su anđeli sve vasione
i slabi su podvodni duhovi zli
da ikad mi razdvoje dušu od duše
prelepe Anabel Li.

Jer večite snove, dok mesec sjaj toči,
snivam o Anabel Li;
kad zvezde zaplove, svud viđam ja oči
prelepe Anabel Li;
po svu noć ja tako uz dragu počivam,
uz nevestu svoju, uz život svoj snivam,
u grobu na žalu, tu ležimo mi,
a more huči i vri.

Edgar Allan Poe – Annabel Lee

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 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
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsmen came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
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 the cloud by night,
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 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 her sepulchre there by the sea—
In her tomb by the sounding sea.
