Fragment: A Roman's Chamber

Published by Mrs. Shelley, "Poetical Works", 1839, 2nd edition.

 1. In the cave which wild weeds cover Wait for thine aethereal lover; For the pallid moon is waning, O'er the spiral cypress hanging And the moon no cloud is staining.  
 2. It was once a Roman's chamber, Where he kept his darkest revels, And the wild weeds twine and clamber; It was then a chasm for devils.
