And rumbling and booming,
        Their journey make
To the isle far looming
        Across the lake:
The lake, that glasses
        Upon its blue,
Cloud, sail that passes,
        And mountain’s hue.
Ding, dong! ding, dong!
        The city lies
        Bathing in dyes,
And light, and perfume, and belfry-song.

With the arms of Svea and Göta, wrought
        On the granite—off from the street.
And cool in shade by the old trees brought,
        Is the porch where the faithful meet.
There, brother and brother,
        I saw them go
Beside each other,
        High and low:
In rank, in endeavor,
        Though parted now,
I saw it ever
        On each clear brow,
The same sweet calm of the Sabbath, lie.
        And in the sun,
        One by one.
The schoolboys, bare-necked and ruddy, went by.

I follow the many who bend their way
        Through aisles with gravestones laid;
As silently, solemnly, slowly, they
        Move on through the colonnade.
And over me kneeling,
        The daylight shakes
Beneath the dark ceiling.
        In scattered flakes.
