Title Page to the 1853 T. Nelson & Sons "Nelson's Library for Travellers and the Fireside" Reprint
Here at the portal thou dost stand,
And with thy little hand
Thou opens the mysterious gate,
Into the future's undiscovered land
I see its valves expand,
As at the touch of Fate!
Into the realms of Love and Hate
