Religious Practices in Jane Eyre :

(c)And moving thro’ a mirror clear
That hangs before her all the year,
Shadows of the world appear.
There she sees the highway near
Winding down to Camelot;
There the rives eddy whirls,
And ther the surly village-churls,
And the red cloak of market girls,
Pass onward from Shalott.


She thought of Jeanie in her grave,
Who should have been a bride;
But who for joys brides hope to have
Fell sick and died
In her gay prime,
In earliest Winter time,
With the first glazing rime,
With the first snow-fall of crisp Winter time.
