How forgotten your name


This beauty if dying-
could you choose to rise above
dare to leave it all behind
do the dead still believe
while the living only grieve?

this world though if sole
repository of the living
and nothing else remained-
how forgotten your name?

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
