XXIII. Grief
‘Forgive my grief for one removed’
By Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)
 
From ‘In Memoriam’

FORGIVE my grief for one removed,
    Thy creature, whom I found so fair.
    I trust he lives in thee, and there
I find him worthier to be loved.
 
Forgive these wild and wandering cries,        5
    Confusions of a wasted youth;
    Forgive them where they fail in truth,
And in thy wisdom make me wise.
