    Vastness! and Age! and Memories of Eld!
Silence! and Desolation! and dim Night!
          The Coliseum.
6618
    This—all this—was in the olden
  Time long ago.
          The haunted Palace.
6619
    Unthought-like thoughts that are the souls of thought,
          To ———.
6620
    This maiden she lived with no other thought
  Than to love and be loved by me.
          Annabel Lee.
6621
    Keeping time, time, time
  In a sort of Runic rhyme
To the tintinnabulation that so musically wells
  From the bells, bells, bells.
          The Bells.
6622
        Hear the mellow wedding bells
        Golden bells!
What a world of happiness their harmony foretells
    Through the balmy air of night
    How they ring out their delight!
          The Bells.
6623
    And all my days are trances
  And all my nightly dreams
Are where thy dark eye glances
  And where thy footstep gleams—
In what ethereal dances
  By what eternal streams.
          To One in Paradise.
6624
    Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping.
          The Raven.
6625
    Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December;
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
          The Raven.
