Adieu

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Adieu Adieu ! thy plaintive anthem fades.

Past the near meadows over the still stream,

up the hill-side ; and now ’tis buried deep

in the next valley glades :

Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Fled is that music:…do I wake or sleep ?

Ode to a nightingale by John KEATS

Crossing the bar

“Twilight and evening bell,

And after that the dark !

And may there be no sadness of farewell,

When I embark;”

“Crossing the bar” by Alfred TENNYSON
