"Is there anybody there?" he said.
But no one descended to the Traveller;
No head from the leaf-fringed sill
Leaned over and looked into his grey eyes,
Where he stood perplexed and still.
But only a host of phantom listeners

And in my forests tigers haunt,
And in my pools great fishes slant
Their fins athwart the sun.
