“But Evil Things In Robes Of Sorrow…”

*** *** ***

…Assailed The Monarch’s High Estate…

…Ah, Let Us Mourn, For Never Morrow Shall Dawn Upon Him Desolate. …

…And ’round About His Home The Glory…

…That Blushed And Bloomed…

…Is But A Dim-Remembered Story Of The Old-Time Entombed.

  1. Another great find, Brad. Until just now, I’d never realized how much this passage reminds me in spirit of the closing lines of Shelley’s “Ozymandias.”
