really liked it
Read in March, 2009

How is it, Shadows! that I knew ye
not?
How came ye muffled in so hush a mask?
Was it a silent deep-disguised plot
To steal away, and leave without a task
My idle days? Ripe was the drowsy
hour;
The blissful cloud of summer-indolence
Benumb'd my eyes; my pulse grew
less and less;
Pain had no sting, and pleasure's wreath
no flower:
O, why did ye not melt, and leave
sense
Unhaunted quite of all but -- nothing-
ness?

(from Ode on Indolence)
