When I have gazed a little on your face,
And then gone forth into the world of men,

A glamour, that transforms each common place,
Attends my spirit then?

Transforms the ruin of that ancient house;
When windows, one by one,--
Like age's eyes, that youth's love-dreams arouse,--
Grow lairs of fire; and glad mouths of gold
Its wide doors, in the sun.
"The Old House" by Madison Julius Cawein
