In the Room By James Thomson.

Part 2 of 13.

And so throughout

the twilight hour
That vaguely murmurous hush and rest
There brooded; and beneath its power
Life throbbing held its throbs supprest:
Until the thin-voiced mirror sigh’d,
I am all blurr’d with dust and damp,
So long ago the clear day died,
So long has gleamed nor fire nor lamp.

Whereon the curtain murmur’d back,
Some change is on us, good or ill;
Behind me and before is black
As when those human things lie still:
But I have seen the darkness grow
As grows the daylight every morn;
Have felt out there long shine and glow,
In here long chilly dusk forlorn.

    In the dark room we see that other things are now also alive. The mirror sighs, sad that it is covered in dust and feels it has been such a long time since it saw the light of day or a fire or a lamp. Then the curtain replies that some change has happened in the room but it is not sure what yet. The curtain has two sides so it can feel the day outside but inside the room it feels only a long and cold dusk.
