Tiresias, and Other Poems

Epitaph on General Gordon

In the Gordon Boys’ National Memorial Home near Woking

Alfred Tennyson

WARRIOR of God, man’s friend, and tyrant’s foe,
Now somewhere dead far in the waste Soudan,
Thou livest in all hearts, for all men know
This earth has never borne a nobler man.
