First Line: Out of the sombre shadows
Last Line: Ali! Hassan! Hussain!
Subject(s): Death; Mourning; Shadows; Dead, The; Bereavement


OUT of the sombre shadows,
Over the sunlit grass,
Slow in a sad procession
The shadowy pageants pass
Mournful, majestic, and solemn,
Stricken and pale and dumb,
Crowned in their peerless anguish
The sacred martyrs come.
Hark, from the brooding silence
Breaks the wild cry of pain
Wrung from the heart of the ages
Ali! Hassan! Hussain!
