First Line: Last night, what kingdom on his brow!
Last Line: Come back till we have said farewell!
Subject(s): Drowning


LAST night, what kingdom on his brow!
What mellow music in his voice!
What strength to make the eye rejoice!
What life! what flush of youth! . . . and now!

O brow dethroned! O muffled bell
Of speech! O net too loosely wove!
O sunken freight of hope and love!
Come back till we have said farewell!
