Blow Bugle blow

Written by: Alfred Lord Tennyson | Biography
 | Quotes (78) |
THE splendour 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 for ever and for ever. 
Blow bugle blow set the wild echoes flying  
And answer echoes answer dying dying dying.
