First Line: As sometimes in a dead man's face
Last Line: His darkness beautiful with thee.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tennyson, Lord Alfred; Tennyson, 1st Baron; Tennyson Of Aldworth And Farringford, Baron
Subject(s): Immortality


As sometimes in a dead man's face,
To those that watch it more and more,
A likeness, hardly seen before,
Comes out -- to some one of his race;

So, dearest, now thy brows are cold,
I see thee what thou art, and know
Thy likeness to the wise below,
Thy kindred with the great of old.

But there is more than I can see,
And what I see I leave unsaid,
Nor speak it, knowing Death has made
His darkness beautiful with thee.
