Walter Savage Landor

(30 January 1775 – 17 September 1864 / Warwick)

Verse - Poem by Walter Savage Landor

Past ruined Ilion Helen lives,
Alcestis rises from the shades.
Verse calls them forth; 'tis verse that gives
Immortal youth to mortal maids.

Soon shall oblivion's deepening veil
Hide all the peopled hills you see,
The gay, the proud, while lovers hail
These many summers you and me.
