The Deserted House
I crossed the style, and hurried on,
My heart with strange emotion torn;
And memory, rushing like a flood,
Traced out each path I ever trod.
For yours had p%st, long years of pain,
And no?, Ijf?^hpsc scenes: again.
Bat oh I hi
The fallen gSfo, TEe crumbling "wall,
The thorn grown rank, and cedar tioe,
That looked up, dark nnd dismally.

"Dcslrl^i, bllgljt, neglect, djicayl)
I gained the deor and turned thekoy,
Howflew my thoughts in memory
Badk\ tnrpugh ,th}o riet* of long year,
BeW^v^tw^tn'iB?ry, sigus and tears;
Of hearts estranged in .bitterness,
Of blighted hopes of happiness.
I entered then tho ?nj'pty hall,
Where echo oaugkt- 3b^ Tafet Td6t--?ll,^-y*
And followed, whilo from room to room,
I strclled 'mid gatlioring dust and gloom;
Gloom right and loft, below, o'erhead,
Dust on the floor,.thq.chairs, tho bed.
The spacious couch in ono room stood,
Embodiment of solUudc,
And 8addejr^tiU, ray heart it grow,
As back nnd forth my footetops flow, :,
Each twffprCBenting objeots known,
Whereon the mould of time had grown.
