THOMAS KIBBLE HERVEY
English poet, critic and journalist
(1799 - 1859)

Wake, soldier wake, thy war-horse waits
  To bear thee to the battle back;--
    Thou slumberest at a foeman's gates,--
      Thy dog would break thy bivouac;
        Thy plume is trailing in the dust,
          And thy red falchion gathering rust.
      - Dead Trumpeter [Soldiers]

I know thou art gone to the home of thy rest--
  Then why should my soul be so sad?
    I know thou art gone where the weary are blest,
      And the mourner looks up, and is glad;
        I know thou hast drank of the Lethe that flows
          In a land where they do not forget,
            That sheds over memory only repose,
              And takes from it only regret.
      - I Know Thou Art Gone [Death]

Morn on the waters, and purple and bright
  Bursts on the billows the flushing of light
    O'er the glad waves, like a child of the sun,
      See the tall vessel goes gallantly on.
      - The Convict Ship [Ships]

A Hebrew knelt in the dying light,
  His eye was dim and cold;
    The hairs on his brow were silver white,
      And his blood was thin and old.
      - The Devil's Progress [Jews]

He stood beside a cottage lone,
  And listened to a lute,
    One summer's eve, when the breeze was gone,
      And the nightingale mute.
      - The Devil's Progress [Music]

Ships that sailed for sunny isles,
  But never came to shore.
      - The Devil's Progress [Ships]
