Algernon Charles Swinburne Quote

Then star nor sun shall waken, Nor any change of light: Nor sound of waters shaken, Nor any sound or sight: Nor wintry leaves nor vernal; Nor days nor things diurnal; Only the sleep eternal In an eternal night.


Selections from the Victorian poets: Tennyson, Browning, Arnold, Swinburne (ed. 1923)
