Elegy Written In A Country Churchyard

The Curfew tolls the knell of parting day,
The lowing herd wind slowly o'er the lea,
The plowman homeward plods his weary way,
And leaves the world to darkness and to me.

This is one poem I remember learning at high school, so it must have made an impact. 'Full many a flower is born to blush unseen/ And waste its sweetness on the desert air'.

There can be so many poems on the same theme but this one is really an outstanding one by all means. Actually, this poem marks the beginning of the modern poetry. See how the poem opens with the description of an evening scene and slowly proceeds to the life of the peasantry folk and to the village church graveyard. This is poetry. Full many a gem of purest ray serene The dark unfathom'd caves of ocean bear: Full many a flower is born to blush unseen, Thomas Alva Edison's favorite piece of poetry was stanza nine of this poem. The boast of heraldry, the pomp of power, And all that beauty, all that wealth e'er gave, Awaits alike the inevitable hour: The paths of glory lead but to the grave. I bow with all humility before this great poet of all times.

Sweeping and profoundly moving. A true masterpiece.
