The unnamed narrator (presumably author Edgar Allan Poe himself) never seems to distance himself from his late love in the famous poem "Annabel Lee." It becomes obvious that looking about over "this kingdom by the sea" repeatedly reminds the narrator of his lost love and the life they spent together there. But it is the celestial visions of the stars and the moon that most recall the narrator's memories of Annabel Lee. The beams of the moon always bring him dreams of Annabel's beauty, and the rising of the stars consistently reminds the man of his love's "bright eyes."
