Tennyson, Alfred Lord - In Memoriam A H H - Life is not as idle ore



Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

Alfred Lord Tennyson – from In Memoriam A.H.H.

Life is not as idle ore
But iron dug from central gloom
And heated hot with burning fears
And dipped in baths of hissing tears
And battered with the shocks of doom
To shape and use

The source of the experience

Tennyson, Alfred Lord
