A Farewell
By Charles Kingsley (1819–1875)
 
MY fairest child, I have no song to give you,—
  No lark could pipe to skies so dull and gray;
Yet, ere we part, one lesson I can leave you
    For every day:
 
Be good, sweet maid, and let who will be clever;        5
  Do noble things, not dream them, all day long:
And so make life, death, and that vast forever
    One grand, sweet song.
