My Plea A Tennyson Phrasis - Poem by Brian Strand

By this still hearth I will drink
life to the lees. Much I have
known and seen.. myself not least.
I am part of all that I have met,
yet how dull it is to pause to make
an end without this plea to thee.
From the eternal silence, something more..
a bringer of new things beyond the
utmost bound of human thought.
Come my friends, strive and find, 'tis not
too late a seek a newer world.

Inspired by some words in Ulyses by Tennyson
