LINES WRITTEN ON A BLANK LEAD OF 'THE PLEASURES OF MEMORY', by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Absent or present, still to thee
Last Line: Her name immortally with thine!
Alternate Author Name(s): Byron, Lord; Byron, 6th Baron
Subject(s): Friendship


ABSENT or present, still to thee,
My friend, what magic spells belong!
As all can tell, who share, like me,
In turn thy converse and thy song.

And when the dreaded hour shall come
By Friendship ever deem'd too nigh,
And 'MEMORY' o'er her Druid's tomb
Shall weep that aught of thee can die,

How fondly will she then repay
Thy homage offer'd at her shrine,
And blend, while ages roll away,
Her name immortally with thine!
