THE NORTH DOOR

HIS ENEMY.

By Greville MacDonald.

“ This story is beautiful and living, serene and passionate at the same time. This spiritual adventure is related with great richness of descriptive detail and poetical beauty and raciness of language.” The Pall Mall Gazette

“The story holds its interest for the reader throughout." The Illustrated London News

A strangely fascinating book." The Observer

“The imagination in the book is splendidly high-soaring; the vision is clear." The Field

A very good story."

Swathed in white clothing that the bravest dread,

Young Lazarus' body in the dark tomb lay,

Earth back to earth, the heavy, lifeless clay.
Four days his sisters wept the darling dead,
No more to labour for their wine and bread.

But One now cries : “Come forth into the day,

O Man I for Death is broke, bonds cast away,
The sun is risen, the bats and clouds have fled !"

As this old story down the stairway rings
And gives dull crysalids red flaming wings
To break through cere-cloth, shroud, -poor mouldy things I
So I, since bidden forth my narrow grave
By your exultant voice, O Comrade brave,
No more am bound old Custom's coward slave!
