e peaks and portals bright,
Where buried kings are tombed at rest,
Sweat odours dank with Torpor's cold;
Infernal pæons shake the busts
Of idols planted in the light.
And, ere immewed gyres froth black mists
Unto all ghauts and splinter'd domes
That cypher signs of dungeoned dell,
A turgid dawn arrays this vale,

On a tomb and fondles gray bones;
An eyeless toad croaks from a well.

And skirr thro' bristling lanes and halls:
Whilst beacons die and shrood each soul,

Wrought by a Titan's sombre queen,
Where graven vypers soop the walls
With blood from maidens scourged as toll.

A swarthy gump leers at the damn'd,
A sultry storm invades each realm.
