Farewell to the Court

Like truthless dreams, so are my joys expir’d, And past return are all my dandled days; My love misled, and fancy quite retir’d– Of all which pass’d the sorrow only stays. My lost delights, now clean from sight of land, Have left me all alone in unknown ways; My mind to woe, my life in […]


And lo! ’twas done with speed of light; The evening soon the world embraced, And o’er the mountains hung the night. Soon stood, in robe of mist, the oak, A tow’ring giant in his size, Where darkness through the thicket broke, And glared with hundred gloomy eyes. From out a hill of clouds the moon […]


Farewell to the bushy clump close to the river And the flags where the butter-bump hides in forever; Farewell to the weedy nook, hemmed in by waters; Farewell to the miller’s brook and his three bonny daughters; Farewell to them all while in prison I lie— In the prison a thrall sees naught but the […]

Farewell by Robert Louis Stevenson

FAREWELL, and when forth I through the Golden Gates to Golden Isles Steer without smiling, through the sea of smiles, Isle upon isle, in the seas of the south, Isle upon island, sea upon sea, Why should I sail, why should the breeze? I have been young, and I have counted friends. A hopeless sail […]

Farewell to Ravelrig

Sweet Ravelrig, I ne’er could part From thee, but wi’ a dowie heart. When I think on the happy days I spent in youth about your braes, When innocence my steps did guide, Where murmuring streams did sweetly glide Beside the braes well stored wi’ trees, And sweetest flow’rs that fend the bees: And there […]

Harp of the North, Farewell!

Harp of the North, farewell! The hills grow dark, On purple peaks a deeper shade descending; In twilight copse the glow-worm lights her spark, The deer, half-seen, are to the covert wending. Resume thy wizard elm! the fountain lending, And the wild breeze, thy wilder minstrelsy; Thy numbers sweet with nature’s vespers blending, With distant […]


Like beacons We wait beneath the stars this night To far to hold but full of hope Mirrored reflections, of thoughts I ponder Beneath the land of gentle slumber With gentle hands I wait and wonder Sit a while to dream and ponder For now I walk beneath the thunder Heavens to hold delight the […]


Farewell is a word, So simple, so dour Saying what started but did not endure. Farewell is a feeling of something that’s gone Farewell is a memory that stays for too long Farewell is everything that’s been left unsaid Farewell is the greeting of someone who’s dead. Peter Rhodes

Farewell my friend

I could easily foretell You had something to tell As you dropped a stinking bombshell Farewell, farewell my friend With words I spell It all out in a nutshell Farewell, farewell my friend What else can I say? When you take off today for good Farewell I say with a broken mood Farewell there goes […]

And So Farewell

Imprisoned by himself to a life of solitude. Alone to decipher real from fake. And so farewell. His only company his ill thoughts of past pain, leading to a mistrust of man and mankind. And so farewell. Time has ravaged his mind, contact, a now foreign concept, has lost another son. And so farewell.
