Charles Wolfe Quotes

Birth Date: 1791-12-14 (Wednesday, December 14th, 1791)



    • Not a drum was heard, not a funeral note, As his corse to the rampart we hurried.
    • But he lay like a warrior taking his rest, With his martial cloak around him.
    • Slowly and sadly we laid him down, From the field of his fame fresh and gory; We carved not a line, and we raised not a stone, But we left him alone with his glory.
    • If I had thought thou couldst have died, I might not weep for thee; But I forgot, when by thy side, That thou couldst mortal be.
    • Yet there was round thee such a dawn Of light, ne'er seen before, As fancy never could have drawn, And never can restore.
    • Go, forget me! why should sorrow O'er that brow a shadow fling? Go, forget me, and to-morrow
