Much of his verse was based on classical mythological themes, such as Ulysses, although In Memoriam A.H.H. was written to commemorate his best friend Arthur Hallam, a fellow poet and fellow student at Trinity College, Cambridge, who was engaged to Tennyson's sister, but... more »

    Beyond Grace (The unwritten verse) by Ron C Leonard. Tribute to Alfred Lord Tennyson's The Lady of Shallot

    Our lady now is still driven
    The curse is broke she forgiven;
    Her sad eyes reflecting heaven
    Return’d to stars as was given;
    Beyond tower’d wall’d Camelot;
    One last web shield not yet started
    Reserve’d for her soul departed;
    Go where hearts need not be parted,
    The Lady of Shalott.

Best Poem of Alfred Lord Tennyson

Charge Of The Light Brigade

HALF a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
'Forward, the Light Brigade!
Charge for the guns! ' he said:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

'Forward, the Light Brigade! '
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the soldier knew
Some one had blunder'd:
Their's not to make reply,
Their's not to reason why,
Their's but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of ...
