    The poem has always been one of my favourites. To salute Alfred Noys I wrote the poem 'After' to capture the mood too.

    Loreena McKennit turned this into a song and it is INCREDIBLE! I LOVE it! Both the poem and song! It's gorgeous!

    One of the most best poems ever created, absolutely beautiful, very sad but lovely change from love to sacrifice to ghost.
