Storyboard Text

  • The rain set early in to-night,  The sullen wind was soon awake,  It tore the elm-tops down for spite,  And did its worst to vex the lake:  I listened with heart fit to break. 
  • When glided in Porphyria; straight  She shut the cold out and the storm,  And kneeled and made the cheerless grate  Blaze up, and all the cottage warm; 
  • Withdrew the dripping cloak and shawl,         And laid her soiled gloves by, untied  Her hat and let the damp hair fall,         And, last, she sat down by my side      And called me. When no voice replied,  She put my arm about her waist, 
  • Murmuring how she loved me — she         Too weak, for all her heart's endeavour,  To set its struggling passion free         From pride, and vainer ties dissever,         And give herself to me for ever. 
  • That moment she was mine, mine, fair,  Perfectly pure and good: I found  A thing to do, and all her hair  In one long yellow string I wound  Three times her little throat around,  And strangled her. No pain felt she; 
  •  And I, its love, am gained instead!  Porphyria's love: she guessed not how  darling one wish would be heard.  And thus we sit together now,  And all night long we have not stirred,  And yet God has not said a word!
