COBWEBS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: It is a land with neither night nor day
Last Line: No future hope, nor fear for evermore.
Alternate Author Name(s): Alleyne, Ellen; Rossetti, Christina
Subject(s): Nothingness; Nihilism; Voids


It is a land with neither night nor day,
Nor heat nor cold, nor any wind nor rain,
Nor hills nor valleys: but one even plain
Stretches through long unbroken miles away,
While through the sluggish air a twilight gray
Broodeth: no moons or seasons wax and wane,
No ebb and flow are there along the main,
No bud-time, no leaf-falling, there for aye: --
No ripple on the sea, no shifting sand,
No beat of wings to stir the stagnant space:
No pulse of life through all the loveless land
And loveless sea; no trace of days before,
No guarded home, no toil-won resting-place,
No future hope, nor fear for evermore.
