ALGERNON CHARLES SWINBURNE The Green Gnome Ring, sing! ring, sing! pleasant Sabbath bells! Chime, rime! chime, rime! through dales and dells! Rime, ring! chime, sing! pleasant Sabbath bells! Chime, sing! rime, ring! over fields and fells! And I galloped and I galloped on my palfrey white as milk, My robe was of the sea-green woof, my serk was of silk; My hair was golden yellow, and it floated to my shoe, My eyes were like two harebells bathed in little drops of dew; My palfrey, never stopping, made a music sweetly blent With the leaves of autumn dropping all around me as I went; And I heard the bells, grown fainter, far behind me peal and play, Fainter, fainter, fainter, till they seemed to die away; And beside a silver runnel, on a little heap of sand, I saw the green gnome sitting, with his cheek upon his hand.

Brother seeks the wandering sheep; But baby sleeps at home. Hush! the rain sweeps o'er the knowes, Where they roam, where they roam; Sister goes to seek the cows; But baby sleeps at home. The Windy Night Alow and aloof, Over the roof, How the midnight tempests howl! With a dreary voice, like the dismal tune Of wolves that bay at the desert moon;— Or whistle and shriek Through limbs that creak, "Tu-who! " They cry and flit, "Tu-whit! " like the solemn owl! Alow and aloof, Over the roof, Sweep the moaning winds amain, And wildly dash The elm and ash, Clattering on the window-sash, With a clatter and patter, Like hail and rain That well nigh shatter The dusky pane!
