Byron, Lord - Elegy on Thyrza



Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

Elegy on Thyrza – Lord Byron

I know not if I could have borne
To see thy beauties fade;
The night that followed such a morn
Had worn a deeper shade;
Thy day without a cloud hath past,
And thou wert lovely to the last
Extinguished not decayed;
As stars that shoot along the sky
Shine brightest as they fall from high

The source of the experience

Byron, Lord
