Epigraph

There is a very life in our despair,
Vitality of poison,—a quick root,
Which feeds these deadly branches; for it were
As nothing did we die; but life will suit
Itself to sorrow's most detested fruit,
Like to the apples on the Dead Sea's shore,
All ashes to the taste.
                                                CHILDE HAROLD.
