O life filled with romance,
O man flooded with poetry-light,
Thy volcano-will devoured
Thy critics’ python-night.

Thy ‘ode to the Sky Lark’
And ‘Prometheus unbound’
Adonais tearful ‘Adonais’
On all brain-fields shall be found.

While sailing thy boat lost thee
A sad story indeed.
But thy pen’s heights and depths
Remained the world to feed.
