Last Line: Silence and darkness and a shrouded calm.
Subject(s): Life; Wind


Ever the wind beats on my fastened door,
My bolted window and my sheltered walls;
Descends the chimney and invades the room.
I thought to guard against it.

Come not, come not! Tempestuous one!
For all my bars are useless straws
That break like threads of silk
Against your urgent stress.

Winds that arouse the sea,
That stir the hills' sweet calm,
Whither away? O stay,
Stay, dauntless one!
See my raised casement!
I unbar the door!

Fearful this silence that pervades the night;
Silence and darkness and a shrouded calm.
