Annabel Lee


Prije mnogo i mnogo godina,
U carstvu kraj mora to bi,
Djeva je živjela, koju su zvali
Imenom Annabel Lee;
S tek jednom je živjela mišlju:
Da voli, i da se volimo mi.

Bio sam dijete i bila je dijete
- U carstvu kraj mora to bi -
Al' više neg' ljubavlju mi smo se ljubili,
Ja i Annabel Lee -
I zbog toga nebeski krilati serafi
bili su zavidni.

I to je razlog što jednom davno
- U carstvu kraj mora to bi -
Vjetar se spusti iz oblaka, noću,
Sledivši moju Annabel Lee.
I došli su plemeniti rođaci njeni,
meni je oteli,
Da je zatvore u grobnicu tamnu
U tom carstvu što kraj mora bi.

Zavidjeli su nam anđeli s neba,
- Ni upola sretni ko mi -
Da! To je razlog (kao što znaju
U tom carstvu kraj mora svi)
Što noću je vjetar iz oblaka doš'o
i sledio, ubio Annabel Lee.
 
Al' ljubav nam bila je jača od ljubavi mnogih
Što su stariji bili neg' mi,
I mudriji mnogo neg' mi -
I niti anđeli, gore na nebu,
Ni podmorski demoni zli
Ne mogu mi razdvojiti dušu od duše
Lijepe Annabel Lee.

Jer mi ne bljesne mjesec, da sna ne donese
O lijepoj Annabel Lee;
Kada zvijezde se stvore, vidim kako gore
Tek oči Annabel Lee.
Tako ležim pored svoje drage do zore
Svoje drage, -drage, - života i mlade,
U njezinoj grobnici uz more
U njenom grobu uz sumorno more.

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 one 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 the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea.



Annabel Lee


Hace muchos, muchos años
en un reino junto al mar.
Allí vivía una doncella conocida
por el nombre de Annabel Lee;
y esa doncella no vivía con otro pensamiento
que el de amarme y que yo la amara.

Yo era un chiquillo y ella una chiquilla,
en aquel reino junto al mar:
Pero nos amábamos con un amor que era más que amor -
mi Annabel Lee y yo.
Con un amor que los alados serafines del cielo
envidiaban de nosotros.

Y éste fue el motivo por el que, hace mucho tiempo,
en aquel reino junto al mar,
un viento llegó desde una nube, helando
a mi hermosa Annabel Lee;
entonces vino aquel hidalgo pariente suyo
y la apartó de mi lado,
para encerrarla en un sepulcro
en aquel reino junto al mar.

Los ángeles que no eran tan felices en el cielo,
nos tenían envidia
-¡Sí! -éste fue el motivo (como toda la gente sabe,
en aquel reino junto al mar)
para que el viento viniera por la noche desde la nube,
helando y matando a mi Annabel Lee.

Pero nuestro amor era mucho más fuerte que el amor
de aquellos que eran más viejos que nosotros
-de muchos que sabían más que nosotros-
y ni siquiera los ángeles allá arriba en el cielo,
ni los demonios en las profundidades del mar,
podrán nunca separar mi alma del alma
de la hermosa Annabel Lee.

Jamás brilla la luna, sin que yo sueñe
con la hermosa Annabel Lee;
jamás salen las estrellas, sin que yo sienta los brillantes ojos
de la hermosa Annabel Lee;
y así, durante toda la noche, permanezco tendido al lado
de mi querida, mi querida, mi vida y mi novia,
allá en el sepulcro junto al mar;
en su tumba junto al mar sonoro.
