In Memoriam A.H.H.
Danube to the Severn gave
The darken’d heart that beat no more;
They laid him by the pleasant shore,
in the hearing of the wave.
twice a day the Severn fills;
That salt sea-water passes by,
And hushes half the babbling Wye,
makes a silence in the hills.
Wye is hush’d nor moved along,
And hush’d my deepest grief of all,
When fill’d with tears that cannot fall,
brim with sorrow drowning song.
tide flows down, the wave again
Is vocal in its wooded walls;
My deeper anguish also falls,
I can speak a little then.
