Famous quotes containing the word tennyson:

    The splendor falls on castle walls
    And snowy summits old in story;
    The long light shakes across the lakes,
    And the wild cataract leaps in glory.
    Blow, bugle, blow, set the wild echoes flying,
    Blow, bugle; answer, echoes, dying, dying, dying.
    —Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    I come from haunts of coot and hern,
    I make a sudden sally,
    And sparkle out among the fern
    To bicker down a valley.
    —Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    O, sweet and far from cliff and scar
    The horns of Elfland faintly blowing!
    —Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
