    The Splendour Falls On Castle Walls
    From The Princess
    by Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809-1892)

    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,
    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!
    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,
    And grow forever and forever.
    Blow, bugle, blow, set the wild echoes flying,
    And answer, echoes, answer, dying, dying, dying.
