ON THE LATE S.T. COLERIDGE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: And thou art gone, most loved, most honored friend!
Last Line: Of all he loved: thy living truths are left.
Subject(s): Coleridge, Samuel Taylor (1772-1834); Poetry & Poets


AND thou art gone, most loved, most honored friend!
No, nevermore thy gentle voice shall blend
With air of Earth its pure ideal tones,
Binding in one, as with harmonious zones,
The heart and intellect. And I no more
Shall with thee gaze on that unfathomed deep,
The Human Soul, -- as when, pushed off the shore,
Thy mystic bark would through the darkness sweep,
Itself the while so bright! For oft we seemed
As on some starless sea,--all dark above,
All dark below, -- yet, onward as we drove,
To plough up light that ever round us streamed.

But he who mourns is not as one bereft
Of all he loved: thy living Truths are left.
