ON THE DEATH
DUKE OF WELLINGTON.
BY ALFRED TENNYSON,
A NEW EDITION.
ON THE DEATH OF
THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON.
LET us bury the Great Duke
With an empire's lamentation, Let us bury the Great Duke
To the noise of the mourning of a mighty nation, Mourning when their leaders fall, Warriors carry the warrior's pall, And sorrow darkens hamlet and hall.
Where shall we lay the man whom we deplore ?
Lead out the pageant: sad and slow,
Mourn, for to us he seems the last,
O voice from which their omens all men drew,
All is over and done:
