Poem of the day
In Memoriam A. H. H. OBIIT MDCCCXXXIII: Part 067
by Alfred Lord Tennyson
When on my bed the moonlight falls,
I know that in thy place of rest
By that broad water of the west,

Thy marble bright in dark appears,
As slowly steals a silver flame
Along the letters of thy name,
Read complete poem
It is by chance we met by choice we became friends.
