Born and bred; Never dead, Only gone.
On! Come on.
Looming, glooming,
Spreading, fuming,
Shattering, scattering,
Parting, darting,
Settling, starting,
All our life
Is a strife, And a wearying for rest On the darkness' friendly breast.
Joining, splitting,
Rising, sitting,
Laughing, shaking,
Sides all aching, Grumbling, grim, and gruff. Swingle, swangle, swuff!
Now a knot of darkness : Now dissolved gloom; Now a pall of blackness Hiding all the room. Flicker, flacker, fluff! .Black, and black enough !
