Comments about Ada Cambridge
When the investing darkness growls,
And deep reverberates to deep;
When keyhole whines and chimney howls,
And all the roofs and windows weep;
Then, through the doorless walls of sleep,
The still-sealed ear and shuttered sight,
Phantoms of memory steal and creep,

Where lightnings flash and house-eaves drip,
A flying swirl of waves and rain--
