But evil things, in robes of sorrow, Assailed the monarch’s high estate. (Ah, let us mourn—for never morrow Shall dawn upon him desolate!) And round about his house of glory That blushed and bloomed Is but a dim-remembered story Of the old time entombed. 

Poem The Haunted Palace by Edgar Allen Poe, 1839.

    That blushed and bloomed 
    Is but a dim-remembered story 
    Of the old time entombed.
