I hold it true, whate'er befall; I feel it, when I sorrow most; 'Tis better to have loved and lost Than never to have loved at all.
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever.
For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far.
For though from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar
--Tennyson (Crossing the Bar)
Crossing the Bar
Sunset and evening star, And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar, When I put out to sea. But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound and foam, When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home! Twilight and evening bell, And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell, When I embark; For though from out our bourn of Time and Place The flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have cross the bar.
(hydrology) A small intermittent stream in a dry valley.
