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

As slowly steals a silver flame
Along the letters of thy name,
Read complete poem
May the sun always shine on your windowpane May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain May the hand of a friend always be near you May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
