Walter Savage Landor -|
Proud Word You Never Spoke
Proud word you never spoke, but you will speak
Four not exempt from pride some future day.
Resting on one white hand a warm wet cheek,
...Over my open volume you will say,
...'This man loved me'--then rise and trip away.
.....Proud Word You Never Spoke by Walter Savage Landor (1775-1864)
