Troy fled, she heard, before the Grecian
sword She heard, and trembled for her absent
lord. Distracted with surprise, she seem'd to
fly, Fear on her cheek and sorrow in her eye. The
nurse attended with her infant boy, The young
Astyanax, the hope of Troy."
Etienne simply nodded. He found himself
before the shaft, in the center of a huge hall
swept by drafts. Of course he thought of himself
as brave, yet an unpleasant emotion caused his
throat to contract among the thundering of the
carts, the clanking of the signals, the muffled
bellowing of the megaphone, facing the
continuously flying cables, unrolling and rolling
up again at top speed on the spools of the
machine. The cages rose and fell, slithering like
some nocturnal animal, continually swallowing men
that the hole seemed to drink down. It was his
turn now.
I wandered lonely as a
cloud That floats on high o'er vales and
hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of
golden daffodils Beside the lake, beneath the
trees, Fluttering and dancing in the
breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And
twinkle on the milky way, They stretched in
never-ending line Along the margin of a bay Ten
thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads
in sprightly dance. The waves beside them
danced but they Out-did the sparkling waves in
glee A poet could not but be gay, In such a
jocund company I gazed--and gazed--but little
thought What wealth the show to me had
brought For oft, when on my couch I lie In
vacant or in pensive mood, They flash upon that
inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude And
then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances
with the daffodils.
