THE NIGHT IS DARKENING ROUND ME, by             Poem Explanation     Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
Alternate Author Name(s): Bell, Ellis


The night is darkening round me,
The wild winds coldly blow;
But a tyrant spell has bound me,
And I cannot, cannot go.


The giant trees are bending
Their bare boughs weighed with snow;
The storm is fast descending,
And yet I cannot go.


Clouds beyond clouds above me,
Wastes beyond wastes below;
But nothing drear can move me;
I will not, cannot go.
