The Phantom Wraith

John Bannister Tabb

 Next Poem          

When roars the wind and beats the rain,
A face before my window-pane--
A phantom of the storm--I see,
My own benighted effigy.

So, when the spirit shuddereth
Before the mystery of Death
Perchance the shadow there portrayed
Is but its own reflected shade.
