And like a Dying Lady, Lean and Pale

And like a dying lady, lean and pale,
  Who totters forth, wrapp'd in a gauzy veil,
  Out of her chamber, led by the insane
  And feeble wanderings of her fading brain,
  The moon arose up in the murky East,
  A white and shapeless mass--Credits and CopyrightTogether with the editors, the Department ofEnglish (University of Toronto), and the University of Toronto Press,the following individuals share copyright for the work that wentinto this edition:Screen Design (Electronic Edition): Sian Meikle (University ofToronto Library)Scanning: Sharine Leung (Centre for Computing in the Humanities)
