THE EDITOR ' S DREAM, The editor sat at a table large, Piled up with manuscript, paper and books. A flickering oil lamp burnt close by his hand, And despair was stamped in his haggard looks. For tomorrow the Index must go to press. All day he had slaved with feverish toil, But had no respite from his labors found, And now he must waste the midnight oil. Before his eyes danced unnumbered ideas, But indefinite, vague, and between them and him. Like the mist on some far distant mountain, a veil Seemed to hang, and beyond roved his phantasies dim. The editors head on his arms was laid. When, through the window, the midnight hour The village bell with its clangor wierd Began to sound from the First Church tower. Twelve times the bell sounded, but stopped not there. But with rapid,- clanging, double stroke, Rang on, and more near seemed to grow the peal. The sound the editor ' s re very broke. " Could it be a fire ? " He sprang to his feet. Room, manuscript, table, were nowhere seen, But he stood beneath a mighty elm Beside a campus, level and green. On every hand edifices rise. Built of brownstone, granite, and marble white. And a flight of white marble stairs led up To two massive oaken doors at his right. The walls of a vast recitation hall Seemed to hold these antique, carven doors of oak, While within an ivied tower above A bell faintly sounded its dying stroke. Amazed, half afraid, but all curious To see what is hid by that ponderous door, He mounts the stair, opens it, steps inside On an inlaid, burnished, mosaic floor. Astonished, he gazes across the hall ; An agate stair leads to a gallery (93)
