Artwork Description:

Lone ampitheatre Grey Coliseum Type of the antique Rome Rich reliquary Of lofty contemplation left to Time By buried centuries of pomp and power At length, at length — after so many days Of weary pilgrimage, and burning thirst, Thirst for the springs of love lore that in thee lie, I kneel, an altered, and an humble man, Amid thy shadows, and so drink within My very soul thy grandeur, gloom, and glory. Vastness and Age and Memories of Eld Silence and Desolation and dim Night Gaunt vestibules and phantom-peopled aisles I feel ye now: I feel ye in your strength O spells more sure then than e’er Judæan king Taught in the gardens of Gethsemane O charms more potent than the rapt Chaldee Ever drew down from out the quiet stars Here, where a hero fell, a column falls: Here, where the mimic eagle glared in gold, A midnight vigil holds the swarthy bat: Here, where the dames of Rome their yellow hair Wav’d to the wind, now wave the reed and thistle: Here, where on ivory couch the Cæsar sate, On bed of moss lies gloating the foul adder: Here, where on golden throne the monarch loll’d, Glides spectre-like unto his marble home, Lit by the wan light of the horned moon, The swift and silent lizard of the stones. These crumbling walls these tottering arcades These mouldering plinths these sad, and blacken’d shafts These vague entablatures this broken frieze These shattered cornices this wreck this ruin These stones, alas — these grey stones — are they all All of the great and the colossal left By the corrosive hours to Fate and me “Not all,” — the echoes answer me “not all: Prophetic sounds, and loud, arise forever From us, and from all ruin, unto the wise, As in old days from Memnon to the sun. We rule the hearts of mightiest men: — we rule With a despotic sway all giant minds. We are not desolate — we pallid stones Not all our power is gone not all our Fame Not all the magic of our high renown Not all the wonder that encircles us Not all the mysteries that in us lie Not all the memories that hang upon, And cling around about us now and ever, And clothe us in a robe of more than glory.”
