Adieu, Adieu! My Native Shore Poem by George Gordon Byron

Adieu, Adieu! My Native Shore

Rating: 3.2


Adieu, adieu! my native shore
Fades o'ver the waters blue;
The night-winds sigh, the breakers roar,
And shrieks the wild sea-mew.
Yon sun that sets upon the sea
We follow in his flight;
Farewell awhile to him and thee,
My native Land-Good Night!
A few short hours, and he will rise
To give the morrow birth;
And I shall hail the main and skies,
But not my mother earth.
Deserted is my own good hall,
Its hearth is desolate;
Wild weeds are gathering on the wall;
My dog howls at the gate.

This is a poem of farewell and there is a bit of lament here. It seems that the place addressed in this poem is very much loved.

'A few short hours, and he will rise To give the morrow birth' - an inspiation to bear with the darkness!

Adieu, adieu! my native shore Fades o'ver the waters blue; The night-winds sigh, the breakers roar, And shrieks the wild sea-mew........adieu to all; time comes and goes; time comes to know the adieu the past and accept the newness of world; beautiful poem penned

When you say Adieu, it is always a sad goodbye. Beautifully phrased and melancholic by the great Poet G.G.Byron.

Most beautifully worded, but full melancholic tunes and tones in this ardent Farewell Tribute to a country he most loved. Very sad and tragic but that made this a most beautiful Farewel Song.
