POEMS OF EMILY BRONTË

XXXII

The old church tower and garden wall
Are black with autumn rain,
And dreary winds foreboding call
The darkness down again.


I watched how evening took the place
Of glad and glorious day;
I watched a deeper gloom efface
The evening's lingering ray;
And as I gazed on the cheerless sky,
Sad thoughts rose in my mind.

October 1837.
