Tiresias, and Other Poems

Epitaph on Caxton

In St. Margaret’s, Westminster

FIAT LUX (his motto)

Alfred Tennyson

THY PRAYER was ‘Light—more Light—while Time shall last!’
Thou rawest a glory growing on the night,
But not the shadows which that light would cast,
Till shadows vanish in the Light of Light.
