Alfred, Lord Tennyson 1809 - 1892

Tennyson penned some of the best-known phrases in the English language.

Crossing the Bar written not long before his death

Sunset and evening star, And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar, When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound and foam, When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell, And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell, When I embark;

For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place The flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crost the bar.

***

Alfred, Lord Tennyson born: August 6, 1809 died: October 6, 1892
