Walter De La Mere
'The lone house'
"‘Is there anybody there?’ said the Traveller, knocking on the moonlit door;"
'Is anyone there?'
'And his horse in the silence champed the grass,Of the forest’s ferny floor.'
'But only a host of phantom listeners,that dwelt in the lone house then,stood listening in the quiet of the moonlight,to that voice from the world of men.'
"For he suddenly smote on the door, even louder, and lifted his head:— ‘Tell them I came, and no one answered,that I kept my word,’ he said."
'Tell them that I came'
'Ay, they heard his foot upon the stirrup, And the sound of iron on stone, And how the silence surged softly backward, When the plunging hoofs were gone.'
