Terror
By F. S. Flint
 
From “In London”

  EYES are tired;
The lamp burns,
And in its circle of light
Papers and books lie
Where chance and life        5
Have placed them.
 
  Silence sings all around me;
My head is bound with a band;
Outside in the street a few footsteps;
A clock strikes the hour.        10
 
  I gaze, and my eyes close
Slowly:
 
  I doze; but the moment before sleep,
A voice calls my name
In my ear,        15
And the shock jolts my heart:
But when I open my eyes,
And look, first left, and then right….
 
  No one is there.
