In his book, State of the Art, David Lehman writes that "Dover Beach" is the most parodied poem of all time. My favorite poem to parody is "Annabel Lee," perhaps because it was the first poem I fell in love with. When I was a girl, my father used to say that Edgar Allan Poe had once wandered in the woods behind our house. He called them the Usher Woods. Of course, I believed him.
