Page 247 - And the evening, fair as ever, Shines on ruin, rock, and river. " Then, in this same boat, beside, Sat two comrades old and tried; One with all a father's truth, One with all the fire of youth. " One on earth in silence wrought, And his grave in silence sought; But the younger, brighter form Passed in battle and in storm.
