Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  A Victorian Anthology, 1837–1895.  1895.
Songs from “The Princess.” I. As thro’ the Land
Alfred Tennyson, 1st Baron (1809–92)
AS thro’ the land at eve we went,
  And pluck’d the ripen’d ears,
We fell out, my wife and I,
  Oh, we fell out I know not why,
And kiss’d again with tears.        5
  And blessings on the falling out
That all the more endears,
  When we fall out with those we love
And kiss again with tears!
  For when we came where lies the child        10
We lost in other years,
  There above the little grave,
Oh, there above the little grave,
  We kiss’d again with tears.
