Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Desolation
 
Only the sea intoning,
  Only the wainscot-mouse,
Only the wild wind moaning
  Over the lonely house.
        T. B. Aldrich.—Poems: December, 1863.
  1
Desolate! Life is so dreary and desolate.
Women and men in the crowd meet and mingle,
Yet with itself every soul standeth single,
  Deep out of sympathy moaning its moan;
Holding and having its brief exultation;
Making its lonesome and low lamentation;
  Fighting its terrible conflicts alone.
        Alice Cary.—Life.
