Creative Quotations from . . .
Alfred, Lord Tennyson
(1809-1892) born on
Aug 06
English poet. He was the Poet Laureate, 1850-92 who wrote "Charge of the Light Brigade," 1854 and "Idylls of the King," 1885.
A bow-shot from her bower-eaves,
He rode between the barley-sheaves,
The sun came dazzling thro' the leaves
And flamed upon the brazen graves
Of bold Sir Lancelot.

Tis only noble to be good.
Kind hearts are more than coronets,
And simple faith than Norman blood.
Twere best at once to sink to peace,
Like birds the charming serpent draws,
To drop head-foremost in the jaws
Of vacant darkness and to cease.
Courage!' he said, and pointed toward the land,
'This mounting wave will roll us shorewards soon.'
In the afternoon they came unto a land
In which it seemèd always afternoon.
Forward the Light Brigade!'
Was there a man dismayed?
