J. C. Squire, ed.  A Book of Women’s Verse.  1921.
 
Gone
By Mary Elizabeth Coleridge (1861–1907)
 
ABOUT the little chambers of my heart
Friends have been coming—going—many a year.
    The doors stand open there.
Some, lightly stepping, enter; some depart.
 
Freely they come and freely go, at will.        5
The walls give back their laughter; all day long
    They fill the house with song.
One door alone is shut, one chamber still.
