Farewell! if ever fondest prayer For other's weal avail'd on high, Mine will not all be lost in air, But waft thy name beyond the sky.
Fills The air around with beauty.

For the sword outwears its sheath, And the soul wears out the breast. And the heart must pause to breathe, And love itself have rest.
Grieving, if aught inanimate e'er grieves, Over the unreturning brave.
