Alfred, Lord Tennyson

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.
Trust that those we call the dead
Are breathers of an ampler day.

Thou madest man, he knows not why.
Upon the middle of the night.
Waking she heard the night-fowl crow.
The woods decay, the woods decay and fall,
The vapours weep their burthen to the ground,
Man comes and tills the field and lies beneath,
And after many a summer dies the swan.
Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark; For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar.
