To The Daisy (fourth poem) Analysis

Sweet Flower! belike one day to have

A place upon thy Poet's grave,

I welcome thee once more:

But He, who was on land, at sea,

My Brother, too, in loving thee,

Although he loved more silently,

Sleeps by his native shore.

Ah! hopeful, hopeful was the day

When to that Ship he bent his way,

To govern and to guide:

His wish was gained: a little time

Would bring him back in manhood's prime

And free for life, these hills to climb;

With all his wants supplied.

And full of hope day followed day

While that stout Ship at anchor lay

Beside the shores of Wight;

The May had then made all things green;

And, floating there, in pomp serene,

That Ship was goodly to be seen,

His pride and his delight!

Yet then, when called ashore, he sought

The tender peace of rural thought:

In more than happy mood

To your abodes, bright daisy Flowers!

He then would steal at leisure hours,

And loved you glittering in your bowers

A starry multitude.

But hark the word!--the ship is gone;--

Returns from her long course:--anon

Sets sail:--in season due,

Once more on English earth they stand:

But, when a third time from the land

They parted, sorrow was at hand

For Him and for his crew.

Ill-fated Vessel!--ghastly shock!

--At length delivered from the rock,

The deep she hath regained;

And through the stormy night they steer;

Labouring for life, in hope and fear,

To reach a safer shore--how near,

Yet not to be attained!

"Silence!" the brave Commander cried:

To that calm word a shriek replied,

It was the last death-shriek.

--A few (my soul oft sees that sight)

Survive upon the tall mast's height;

But one dear remnant of the night--

For Him in vain I seek.

Six weeks beneath the moving sea

He lay in slumber quietly;

Unforced by wind or wave

To quit the Ship for which he died,

(All claims of duty satisfied;)

And there they found him at her side;

And bore him to the grave.

Vain service! yet not vainly done

For this, if other end were none,

That He, who had been cast

Upon a way of life unmeet

For such a gentle Soul and sweet,

Should find an undisturbed retreat

Near what he loved, at last--

That neighbourhood of grove and field

To Him a resting-place should yield,

A meek man and a brave!

The birds shall sing and ocean make

A mournful murmur for 'his' sake;

And Thou, sweet Flower, shalt sleep and wake

Upon his senseless grave.
