by Emily Brontë (1818 - 1848)

All hushed and still within the house
Language: English 
All hushed and still within the house
Without - all [wind and driving rain]1.
But something whispers to my mind
Through [rain and through the]2 wailing wind -

- Never again,
Never again? Why not again?
Memory has power as real as [thine]3.
