Alfred Tennyson, 1809-1892

"No More"
from The Gem: A Literary Annual (London: W. Marshall, 1831).

Frontispiece to The Gem (1831).

   OH sad No More!  Oh sweet No More!
         Oh strange No More!
     By a mossed brookbank on a stone
     I smelt a wildweed-flower alone;
     There was a ringing in my ears,
     And both my eyes gushed out with tears.
 Surely all pleasant things had gone before,
 Lowburied fathomdeep beneath with thee, NO MORE!
