WHERE THEIR WORM DIETH NOT, AND THE FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: In tempest and storm, b;ackness of darkness for ever
Last Line: In tempest and storm
Alternate Author Name(s): Alleyne, Ellen; Rossetti, Christina
Subject(s): Worms

In tempest and storm blackness of darkness for ever,
A fire unextinguished, a worm's indestructible swarm;
Where no hope shall ever be more, and love shall be never,
In tempest and storm;
Where the form of all things is fashionless, void of all form;
Where from death that severeth all, the soul cannot sever
In tempest and storm.
