Thread Name: Is there Balm in Gilead?
Subject: RE: Is there Balm in Gilead?
I was having lunch in a pub in Athlone, Ireland, many years ago and the piped music in the background was nagging away at a corner of my mind. I started to listen and recognised, played to a country type tune, Poe's "Annabel Lee":

I was a child and she was a child
In that city beneath the sea.
But we loved with a loce that was more than just love
Me - and my Annabel Lee".

"The Raven" was always a great favourite of mine.
