Martin Farquhar Tupper

(July 17, 1810 - November 1889 / London)

A Dirge For Wellington

A voice of lamentation
From the islands of the Sea!
Alas, thou sorrowing Nation,
Bereaved - alas for thee!
The wail as of a mother
Weeping for her son,-
When shall she bear another
Like that illustrious One?

[Hata Bildir]
