Poem of the day
In Memoriam A. H. H. OBIIT MDCCCXXXIII: Part 075
by Alfred Lord Tennyson
I leave thy praises unexpress'd
In verse that brings myself relief,
And by the measure of my grief
I leave thy greatness to be guess'd;
What practice howsoe'er expert
In fitting aptest words to things,
Or voice the richest-toned that sings,
Read complete poem
Only the gentle are ever really strong.
