ALFRED LORD TENNYSON: Dark House

Dark House

Dark house, by which once more I stand
  Here in the long unlovely street.
  Doors, where my heart was used to beat
So quickly, waiting for a hand.

A hand that can be clasped no more –
  Behold me, for I cannot sleep,
  And like a guilty thing I creep
At earliest morning to the door.

He is not here; but far away
  The noise of life begins again,
  And ghastly thro’ the drizzling rain
On the bald street breaks the blank day.
