In Memoriam A. H. H.: 126. Love Is And Was My Lord And King

Poem By Alfred Lord Tennyson

Love is and was my Lord and King,
And in his presence I attend
To hear the tidings of my friend,
Which every hour his couriers bring.
Love is and was my King and Lord,
And will be, tho' as yet I keep
Within his court on earth, and sleep
Encompass'd by his faithful guard,
And hear at times a sentinel
Who moves about from place to place,
And whispers to the worlds of space,
In the deep night, that all is well.

A lyric which you cannot help liking because it values love and there is a sense that 'that all is well'.
