Subject(s): Books; Reading


Reading, and reading -- little is the gain
Long dwelling with the minds of dead men leaves.
List rather to the melancholy rain,
Drop -- dropping from the eaves.

Still, the old tale -- how hardly worth the telling!
Hark to the wind! -- again that mournful sound,
That, all night long, around this lonely dwelling,
Moans like a dying hound.
