    You My dear Byron,
    You said:
    (Fame, wisdom, love, and power were mine,
    And health and youth possess'd me ;)

    I say, all are still yours
    No one can dare to lance
    The elegant legs of a horse...!

    You are still here with your voice
    With your cheerful stanzas
    With your poetic glamourous shadows...

    You died as a martyr
    But without horse
    Leaving your lexicons
    To chant forever...! (Report) Reply
