Esseintes__: Once over-feted, now neglected American poet Edwin Arlington Robinson makes a western gate the central sign of "Luke Havergal" (c. 1897). Before the poem becomes overtly spectral & ghastly in 3rd stanza, we can already sense a foreboding of death in this monotonous chant.

Michael Drayton Poem
Sonnet Lii: What? Dost Thou Mean
