A Farewell

Rating: 3.3
Flow down, cold rivulet, to the sea,
Thy tribute wave deliver:
No more by thee my steps shall be,
For ever and for ever.

Flow, softly flow, by lawn and lea,
A rivulet then a river:
Nowhere by thee my steps shall be
For ever and for ever.
But here will sigh thine alder tree

Tennyson's flow of words is remarkable! A thousand suns will stream on thee, A thousand moons will quiver; But not by thee my steps shall be, For ever and for ever. A beautiful poem!
