Break, Break, Break:

Break, Break, Break By Alfred Tennyson

Break, break, break On the cold, grey stones, O sea! But I would that my tongue could utter The thoughts that arise in me:

Break, break, break On the cold, grey stones, O sea! But I would that my tongue could utter The thoughts that arise in me

Oh well for the fisherman's boy, That he shouts with his sister at play. Oh well for the sailor lad, That he sings in his boat on the bay.:

Oh well for the fisherman's boy, That he shouts with his sister at play. Oh well for the sailor lad, That he sings in his boat on the bay.

And the stately ships go on To their haven under the hill But o for the touch of a vanished hand And the sound of a voice that is still:

And the stately ships go on To their haven under the hill But o for the touch of a vanished hand And the sound of a voice that is still

Break, break, break At the foot of thy crags, O sea! But the tender grace of a day that is dead Will never come back to me!:

Break, break, break At the foot of thy crags, O sea! But the tender grace of a day that is dead Will never come back to me!
