Arthur Quiller-Couch, comp.  The Oxford Book of Victorian Verse.  1922.
 
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.
