Canto 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;    The 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.

-Alfred Lord Tennyson, In Memoriam A. H. H., Canto XIX
