Famous quotes containing the word tennyson:

    Now fades the lasts long streak of snow,
    Now burgeons every maze of quick
    About the flowering squares, and thick
    By ashen roots the violets blow.
    —Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    And through the field the road runs by
    To many-towered Camelot;
    —Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    Like a tale of little meaning though the words are strong;
    Chanted from an ill-used race of men that cleave the soil,
    Sow the seed, and reap the harvest with enduring toil,
    Storing yearly little dues of wheat, and wine and oil;
    Till they perish and they suffer—some, ‘tis
    whispered—down in hell
    —Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
