'What! is not this my place of strength,' she said,
‘My spacious mansion built for me,
Whereof the strong foundation-stones were laid
Since my first memory?’

But in dark corners of her palace stood
Uncertain shapes; and unawares
On white-eyed phantasms weeping tears of blood,
And horrible nightmares,

And hollow shades enclosing hearts of flame,
And, with dim fretted foreheads all,
On corpses three-months-old at noon she came,
That stood against the wall.

A spot of dull stagnation, without light
Or power of movement, seem’d my soul,
Mid onward-sloping motions infinite
Making for one sure goal;

A still salt pool, lock’d in with bars of sand,
Left on the shore, that hears all night
The plunging seas draw backward from the land
Their moon-led waters white;

A star that with the choral starry dance
Join’d not, but stood, and standing saw
The hollow orb of moving Circumstance
Roll’d round by one fix’d law.


— Alfred Lord Tennyson, fromĀ The Palace of Art
