No 38 Emily Jane Brontë (March 1838)
Deep, deep down in the silent grave/ With none to mourn above—-
Here with my knee upon thy stone/I bid adieu to feelings gone/I leave with thee my tears and pain/And rush into the world again
O come again what chains withhold/ The steps that used so fleet to be-/ Come leave thy dwelling dark and cold/ Once more to visit me! —
Was it with the fields of green/Blowing flower and budding tree/ With the summer heaven serene/That thou didst visit me?
No ’twas not the flowery plain/No ’twas not the fragrant air/Summer skies will come again/ but thou wilt not be there –
