In Memoriam A.H.H.

         
            LXXXVI.
             
      Sweet after showers, ambrosial air,
          That rollest from the gorgeous gloom
          Of evening over brake and bloom
      And meadow, slowly breathing bare

      The round of space, and rapt below
          Thro’ all the dewy-tassell’d wood,
          And shadowing down the horned flood
      In ripples, fan my brows and blow

      The fever from my cheek, and sigh
          The full new life that feeds thy breath
          Throughout my frame, till Doubt and Death,
      Ill brethren, let the fancy fly

      From belt to belt of crimson seas
          On leagues of odour streaming far,
          To where in yonder orient star
      A hundred spirits whisper ‘Peace.’
