ALFRED TENNYSON

MY GRANDSON

Golden-hair'd Ally whose name is one with mine,

Crazy with laughter and babble and earth's new wine,

Now that the flower of a year and a half is thine,

O little blossom, O mine, and mine of mine,

Glorious poet who never hast written a line,

augh, for the name at the head of my ve

is thine.

May'st thou never be wrong'd by the name that is mine !
