Excerpt
AN old house, crumbling half away, all barnacled and lichen-grown, / Of saddest, mellowest, softest grey,—with a grand history of its own— / Grand with the work and strife and tears of more than half a thousand years. / Such delicate, tender, russet tones of colour on its gables slept, / With streaks of gold betwixt the stones, where wind-sown flowers and mosses crept: / Wild grasses waved in sun and shade o'er terrace slab and balustrade. / Around the clustered chimneys clung the ivy's wreathed and braided threads, / And dappled lights and shadows flung across the sombre browns and reds; / Where'er the graver's hand had been, it spread its tendrils bright and green. / Far-stretching branches shadowed deep the blazoned windows and broad eaves, / And rocked the faithful rooks asleep, and strewed the terraces with leaves. / A broken dial marked the hours amid damp lawns and garden bowers.
