    Those eyes! those large, those shining, those divine orbs! they became to me twin stars of Leda, and I to them devoutest of astrologers.

    I feel how much even of incipient madness might have been discovered in the gorgeous and fantastic draperies

    There was now a partial glow upon the forehead and upon the cheek and throat; a perceptible warmth pervaded the whole frame; there was even a slight pulsation at the heart.

    felt that some palpable although invisible object had passed lightly by my person;

    and elaborately fretted with the wildest and most grotesque specimens of a semi-Gothic, semi-Druidical device.

    I saw that she must die—and I struggled desperately in spirit with the grim Azrael.

    Words are impotent to convey any just idea of the fierceness of resistance with which she wrestled with the Shadow.

    they became to me twin stars of Leda,

    It was then that I became distinctly aware of a gentle footfall upon the carpet, and near the couch; and in a second thereafter, as Rowena was in the act of raising the wine to her lips, I saw, or may have dreamed that I saw, fall within the goblet, as if from some invisible spring in the atmosphere of the room, three or four large drops of a brilliant and ruby colored fluid. If this I saw—not so Rowena. She swallowed the wine unhesitatingly, and I forbore to speak to her of a circumstance which must, after all, I considered, have been but the suggestion of a vivid imagination, rendered morbidly active by the terror of the lady, by the opium, and by the hour.

    But, as I stepped beneath the light of the censer, two circumstances of a startling nature attracted my attention. I had felt that some palpable although invisible object had passed lightly by my person; and I saw that there lay upon the golden carpet, in the very middle of the rich lustre thrown from the censer, a shadow—a faint, indefinite shadow of angelic aspect—such as might be fancied for the shadow of a shade. But I was wild with the excitement of an immoderate dose of opium,

    and of the unusual motions among the tapestries, to which she had formerly alluded.
