I looked top top the scene prior to me--upon the only house, and also the straightforward landscape functions of the domain--upon the cold walls--upon the vacant eye-like windows--upon a couple of rank sedges--and upon a few white trunks the decayed trees--with one utter depression of spirit which I have the right to compare come no earthly sensation much more properly than to the after-dream that the reveller upon opium--the bitter lapse into day-to-day life--the hideous dropping off of the veil.

Banner yellow, glorious, golden, ~ above its roof go float and also flow; (This - all this - was in the olden Time long ago) and every tenderness air that dallied, In that sweet day, along the ramparts plumed and also pallid, A winged odor go away. III. Wanderers in the happy valley v two luminous windows saw Spirits moving musically to a lute"s well-tunéd law, Round about a throne, wherein sitting (Porphyrogene !) In state his glory fine befitting, The leader of the kingdom was seen. IV. And also all v pearl and ruby glowing was the fair royal residence door, v which come flowing, flowing, flowing, and sparkling evermore, A troop of Echoes whose sweet duty Was however to sing, In voices the surpassing beauty, The wit and also wisdom of their king. V. Yet evil things, in robes the sorrow, Assailed the monarch"s high legacy ; (Ah, let us mourn, for never morrow chandelier dawn ~ above him, desolate !) And, round around his home, the glory the blushed and bloomed Is but a dim-remembered story the the old time entombed. VI. And also travellers currently within the valley, v the red-litten windows, see substantial forms that move fantastically to a discordant melody ; While, prefer a quick ghastly river, through the pale door, A hideous throng rush the end forever, and laugh - yet smile no more.” ― Edgar Allan Poe, The fall of the house of Usher and Other story
