"and his face grew peaked and eerie,/ and his large eyes strange and bright,/ and they said, too late, 'he is weary;/ he shall rest for at least to-night.'" (3.) "but at dawn when the birds were waking,/ as they watched in the silent room,/ with the sound of a strained cord breaking/ a something snapped in the gloom." (4.)

[P. 8.] "Studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia, and in Paris and Florence." [P. XLIV.]
