In Memoriam A. H. H.: 7. Dark house, by which once more I s

Dark house, by which once more I stand
  Here in the long unlovely street,
  Doors, where my heart was used to beat
  So quickly, waiting for a hand,
  A hand that can be clasp'd no more--
  Behold me, for I cannot sleep,
  And like a guilty thing I creep
  At earliest morning to the door.
  He is not here; but far away
  The noise of life begins again,
  And ghastly thro' the drizzling rain
  On the bald street breaks the blank day.
