Excerpt
This is a tale of those old fears, even of those emptied hells, and none but you shall understand the true thing that it tells?Of what colossal gods of shame could cow men and yet crash, Of what huge devils hid the stars, yet fell at a pistol flash. The doubts that were so plain to chase, so dreadful to withstand?Oh, who shall understand but you; yea, who shall understand? The doubts that drove us through the night as we two talked amain, and day had broken on the streets e?er it broke upon the brain. Between us, by the peace of God, such truth can now be told; Yea, there is strength in striking root and good in growing old. We have found common things at last and marriage and a creed, and I may safely write it now, and you may safely read.
