Excerpt from Sonnets on the Death of the Duke of Wellington

Weep ye, and mourn! our last great man is gone!
Gone from the camp and council! - nevermore
Dwelleth with men the man we loved of yore!
Go softly! brothers, are we not alone,

Overview

Excerpt from Sonnets on the Death of the Duke of Wellington

Weep ye, and mourn! our last great man is gone!
Gone from the camp and council! - nevermore
Dwelleth with men the man we loved of yore!
Go softly! brothers, are we not alone,

Walking a night all rayless? - he that shone
The lodestar of our England, and before
Our faltering feet shed holy light and lore,
Hath fled our skies, and left his sphere to none!

Weep ye and mourn, palace, and hall, and cot!
Did he not live among us as a part
Of hearth and home, and his familiar fame

Fill all the rushing pulses of the heart
With pride that we too bore a Briton's name?
- O claim no kindred, ye who mourn him not!
