IN MEMORIAM A.H.H.: 62, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Tho' if an eye that's downward cast
Last Line: Is matter for a flying smile.

Subject(s): Hallam, Arthur Henry (1811-1833); Death; Mourning; Friendship


Tho' if an eye that's downward cast
Could make thee somewhat blench or fail,
Then be my love an idle tale
And fading legend of the past;

And thou, as one that once declined,
When he was little more than boy,
On some unworthy heart with joy,
But lives to wed an equal mind,

And breathes a novel world, the while
His other passion wholly dies,
Or in the light of deeper eyes
Is matter for a flying smile.
