The Bugle-Song
By Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)
 
  THE SPLENDOR falls on castle walls
    And snowy summits old in story:
  The long light shakes across the lakes,
    And the wild cataract leaps in glory.
Blow, bugle, blow, set the wild echoes flying,        5
Blow, bugle; answer, echoes, dying, dying, dying.
 
  O hark, O hear! how thin and clear,
    And thinner, clearer, farther going!
  O sweet and far from cliff and scar
    The horns of Elfland faintly blowing!        10
Blow, let us hear the purple glens replying:
Blow, bugle; answer, echoes, dying, dying, dying.
 
  O love, they die in yon rich sky,
    They faint on hill or field or river:
  Our echoes roll from soul to soul,        15
    And grow forever and forever.
Blow, bugle, blow, set the wild echoes flying,
And answer, echoes, answer, dying, dying, dying.
