Oblivion


Forgotten I shall be,
By no intent
To that, woe is me!
None will lament...

Die in grace,
Like a dying star
Stay in place,
Like my heart afar

Oblivion will have me,
But know this dear,
Done that, we shall see,
That you have none to fear

Oblivion will have me,
And in your memory I shall be amiss
As this world delights in glee,
I'll see to your comfort and joy, my miss

Oblivion will have me,
And all shall forget
My soul adrift at sea,
Will not have regret

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.
