Morte d’Arthur By Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Morte d’Arthur By Alfred, Lord Tennyson So all day long the noise of battle roll’dAmong the mountains by the winter sea;Until King Arthur’s table, man by man,Had fallen in Lyonnesse about their Lord,King Arthur: then, because his wound was deep,The bold Sir Bedivere uplifted him,Sir Bedivere, the last of all his knights,And bore him to […]

Move Eastward, Happy Earth By Alfred Lord Tennyson

Move Eastward, Happy Earth By Alfred Lord Tennyson Move eastward, happy earth, and leaveYour orange sunset waning slow;From fringes of the faded eve,O, happy planet, eastward go;Till over thy dark shoulder glowThy silver sister-world, and riseTo glass herself in dewy eyesThat watch me from the glen below.

The Flower By Alfred Lord Tennyson

The Flower By Alfred Lord Tennyson Once in a golden hourI cast to earth a seed.Up there came a flower,The people said, a weed.   To and fro they wentThro’ my garden-bower,And muttering discontentCurs’d me and my flower.

Crossing The Bar By Alfred Lord Tennyson

Crossing The Bar By Alfred Lord Tennyson Sunset and evening star,And one clear call for me!And may there be no moaning of the bar,When I put out to sea, But such a tide as moving seems asleep,Too full for sound and foam,When that which drew from out the boundless deepTurns again home.

Locksley Hall By Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Locksley Hall By Alfred, Lord Tennyson Comrades, leave me here a little, while as yet ‘t is early morn:Leave me here, and when you want me, sound upon the bugle-horn. ‘T is the place, and all around it, as of old, the curlews call,Dreary gleams about the moorland flying over Locksley Hall; Locksley Hall, that […]

Break, Break, Break By Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Break, Break, Break By Alfred, Lord Tennyson Break, break, break,On thy cold gray stones, O sea!And I would that my tongue could utterThe thoughts that arise in me.

The Eagle By Alfred, Lord Tennyson
