|Contents:||Children, with bright faces, tript merrily beside their parents, or mimicked a graver gait --
The old people of the village came stooping along the street --
The topic, it might be supposed, was obvious enough --
Customers came in, as the forenoon advanced, but rather slowly --
Stooping somewhat and looking on the ground, as is customary with abstracted men --
The deep pause of flagging spirits, that always follows mirth and wine --
In his case, however, the symbol had a different import --
It takes off its face like a mask, and shows the grinning bare skeleton underneath --
Mr. Hooper, face to face with his congregation, except for the black veil --
If I had ever once been happy, methinks I could contentedly be shot to-day --
If it be a sign of mourning, I, perhaps, like most other mortals, have sorrows dark enough --
What is this world good for now that we can never be jolly anymore --
I have suffered woefully from low spirits for some time past --
Every work, by an artist of celebrity, is hidden behind a veil --
Had her eyes provoked, or assented to this deed? She had not known it. But, alas! --
A veil may sometimes be needful, but never a masque --
There being a heavy rain yesterday, a nest of swallows was washed down the chimney --
Hither coasters &c. and fishing smacks run in, when a storm is anticipated --
So far as I am a man of really individual traits, I veil my face --
"The Minister's Black Veil" / Nathaniel Hawthorne.
