On the Death of Southey
By Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)
 
    NOT the last struggles of the Sun,
    Precipitated from his golden throne,
Hold darkling mortals in sublime suspense;
    But the calm exod of a man
    Nearer, tho’ far above, who ran        5
The race we run, when Heaven recalls him hence.
