London Streets
Wimpole Street
Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)
(From In Memoriam)

DARK house, by which once more I stand
  Here in the long unlovely street,
  Doors, where my heart was used to beat
So quickly, wailing for a hand,—
A hand that can be clasped no more,—        5
  Behold me, for I cannot sleep,
  And like a guilty thing I creep
At earliest morning to the door.
He is not here; but far away
  The noise of life begins again,        10
  And ghastly through the drizzling rain
On the bald street breaks the blank day.
