  IN MEMORIAM TECHNICAM  

I count it true which sages teach--
    That passion sways not with repose,
    That love, confounding these with those,
Is ever welding each with each.

And so when time has ebbed away,
    Like childish wreaths too lightly held,
    The song of immemorial eld
Shall moan about the belted bay.

Where slant Orion slopes his star,
    To swelter in the rolling seas,
    Till slowly widening by degrees
The grey climbs upward from afar.

And golden youth and passion stray
    Along the ridges of the strand,--
    Not far apart, but hand in hand,--
With all the darkness danced away!

                                Thomas Hood, Jr.
