And deep reverberates to deep;
When keyhole whines and chimney howls,
And all the roofs and windows weep;

The still-sealed ear and shuttered sight,
Phantoms of memory steal and creep,
The very ghosts of sound and light--
Dream-visions and dream-voices of a bygone night.


I see again, I hear again,
Where lightnings flash and house-eaves drip,
A flying swirl of waves and rain--

At Sea

When the investing darkness growls,
And deep reverberates to deep;
When keyhole whines and chimney howls,

The still-sealed ear and shuttered sight,
Phantoms of memory steal and creep,
The very ghosts of sound and light--
Dream-visions and dream-voices of a bygone night.
