In T S Eliots The Waste Land you perceive many images from the writing style he uses In lines 386 - 399 he writes In this decayed hole among the mountains In the faint moonlight the grass is singing Over the tumbled graves about the chapel There is the empty chapel only the winds home It has no windows and the door swings Dry bones can harm no one Only a cock stood on the rooftree Co co rico co co rico In a flash of lightning Then a damp gust Bringing rain Ganga was sunken and the limp leaves Waited for rain while the black clouds Gathered far distant over Himavant The jungle crouched humped in silence In these lines he seems to tell of a graveyard near a chapel in an upcoming storm Different images can be seen from the decayed hole in the moonlight the empty chapel without windows and the roosters crows as the lightning and black clouds arrive In line 386 In this decayed hole among the mountains probably refers to an empty grave that brings images of death and the end of life or possibly the beginning of a new life to mind The grave is lit by moonlight possibly referring to the white light many people see when they have near-death experiences You get a creepy feeling when the wind blows and makes the grass sing in line 387 In these first three lines it talks of tumbled graves possibly disturbed by nature which could tell of troubled lives or a troubled second life The empty chapel without windows is nearby as you perceive from lines 389 and 390 There is the empty chapel only the winds home It has no windows and the door swings Its image makes you shiver It could possibly represent itself in the sense that many people die there
