In Memoriam A.H.H.

         
            LXIII.
             
      Yet pity for a horse oer-driven,
          And love in which my hound has part,
          Can hang no weight upon my heart
      In its assumptions up to heaven;

      And I am so much more than these,
          As thou, perchance, art more than I,
          And yet I spare them sympathy,
      And I would set their pains at ease.

      So mayst thou watch me where I weep,
          As, unto vaster motions bound,
          The circuits of thine orbit round
      A higher height, a deeper deep.
