Diary Post

Near the lake

In spring of youth it was my lot
To haunt of the wide earth a spot
The which I could not love the less—
So lovely was the loneliness
Of a wild lake, with black rock bound,
And the tall pines that tower’d around.

But when the Night had thrown her pall
Upon that spot, as upon all,
And the mystic wind went by
Murmuring in melody—
Then—ah then I would awake
To the terror of the lone lake.

Yet that terror was not fright,
But a tremulous delight—
A feeling not the jewelled mine
Could teach or bribe me to define—
Nor Love—although the Love were thine.

Death was in that poisonous wave,
And in its gulf a fitting grave
For him who thence could solace bring
To his lone imagining—
Whose solitary soul could make
An Eden of that dim lake. (by Edgar Allan Poe)

Galland Homes Galveston House NEW!!! (The Galveston, late of the February, 2018 Builder’s Box is now available for sale individually at my main store. (It should be on the MP by the end of the day.) Those who liked the recent Lauren Valley home may see that it was constructed off of the Galveston base and the Galveston is a perfect and budget friendly offering for the avatar who may live alone or want a smaller space.)
