POEMS OF EMILY BRONTË

XXV

The wind was rough which tore
That leaf from its parent tree;
The fate was cruel which bore
The withering corpse to me.


We wander and we have no rest,
It is a dreary way.
What shadow is it
That ever hovers before my eyes?
It has a brow of ghostly whiteness.

November 23, 1839.
