In Memoriam A.H.H.

         
            XIX.
             
      The Danube to the Severn gave
          The darken’d heart that beat no more;
          They laid him by the pleasant shore,
      And in the hearing of the wave.

      There twice a day the Severn fills;
          That salt sea-water passes by,
          And hushes half the babbling Wye,
      And makes a silence in the hills.

      The Wye is hush’d nor moved along,
          And hush’d my deepest grief of all,
          When fill’d with tears that cannot fall,
      I brim with sorrow drowning song.

      The tide flows down, the wave again
          Is vocal in its wooded walls;
          My deeper anguish also falls,
      And I can speak a little then.
