[It Was Getting Dark By The Time I Went Out, And Nobody Who Knows The Country Will Need To Be Told How Black Is The Darkness Of A November Night Under High Laurel Bushes And Yew-trees. I Walked Into The Heart Of The Shrubberies Two Or Three Times, Not Seeing A Step Before Me, Till I Came Out Upon The Broader Carriage-road, Where The Trees Opened A Little, And There Was A Faint Grey Glimmer Of Sky Visible, Under Which The Great Limes And Elms Stood Darkling Like Ghosts; But It Grew Black Again As I Approached The Corner Where The Ruins Lay.
