    With my beloved I lingered late one night.
    At last the hour when I must leave her came:
    But, as I turned, a fear I could not name
    Possessed me that the long sweet evening might ...
  • Sailor's Song, Returning
    The sea goes up; the sky comes down.
    Oh, can you spy the ancient town, -
    The granite hills so green and gray,
    That rib the land behind the bay? ...
  • I Loved You, Once
    And did you think my heart
    Could keep its love unchanging,
    Fresh as the buds that start
    In spring, nor know estranging? ...
  • Wedding-night. (moods Of Love.)
    At night, with shaded eyes, the summer moon

Thomas Moore Poem
Lay His Sword By His Side
 by Thomas Moore

Lay his sword by his side -- it hath served him too well
Not to rest near his pillow below;
To the last moment true, from his hand ere it fell,
Its point was still turn'd to a flying foe.
Fellow-labourers in life, let them slumber in death,
Side by side, as becomes the reposing brave --
That sword which he loved still unbroke in its sheath,
And himself unsubdued in his grave.
