Three different treatments in monochrome:
“Is there anybody there?” said the Traveller
Knocking on the moonlit door….
….For he suddenly smote on the door, even
Louder, and lifted his head:–
“Tell them I came, and no one answered,
That I kept my word,” he said….
Never the least stir made the listeners….
and the silence surged softly backward….
Along with the poems of Dylan Thomas, The Listeners by Walter de la Mare is one of my all time favourites.
