XIV. This Is Thy Hour
Requiescat
By Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)
 
FAIR is her cottage in its place,
  Where yon broad water sweetly slowly glides
It sees itself from thatch to base
  Dream in the sliding tides.
 
And fairer she, but ah how soon to die!        5
  Her quiet dream of life this hour may cease.
Her peaceful being slowly passes by
  To some more perfect peace.
