"Andernacht" [poem]
Andernacht a
We have wound a weary way
Twilights mists are gathering grey
Purple now the hills are showing
Ruskin's line number
380

Bright the western clouds are glowing
Lashing on with giant force
System generated line number
5

Rolls the Rhine his sullen course
Flash his waves with flamy red
Eddying oer their basalt bed
Ruskin's line number
385

Now with wide expanded breast
Now between the hills comprest
System generated line number
10

Ever noble, ever free
Flows his river majesty
Now upon the evening skies
Ruskin's line number
390

Andernachts hoar ruins rise 1
Memorials of the Roman power 2
System generated line number
15

Buttress and battlement and tower
Decaying falling fast away
The monuments of Caesars sway
Ruskin's line number
395

In heaps together loosely thrown
The sculptured head, inscriptioned stone
System generated line number
20

Unguarded now the bridges length
And failing fast its arches strength
The green sod in the moat is growing
Ruskin's line number
400

The cold wind in the chambers blowing
And flapping through the thin night air
System generated line number
25

The owl and bat the tenants there
