Home They Brought Her Warrior Dead

This poem, by Alfred Lord Tennyson used to be one of my favorites in school.

It has been really long since I last remembered these lyrics. The 26/11 blasts in Mumbai brought it to the fore.

Home they brought her warrior dead:
  She nor swooned, nor uttered cry:
All her maidens, watching, said,
  'She must weep or she will die.'

Then they praised him, soft and low,
  Called him worthy to be loved,
Truest friend and noblest foe;
  Yet she neither spoke nor moved.

Stole a maiden from her place,
  Lightly to the warrior stept,
Took the face-cloth from the face;
  Yet she neither moved nor wept.

Rose a nurse of ninety years,
  Set his child upon her knee—
Like summer tempest came her tears—
  'Sweet my child, I live for thee.'


- Lord Tennyson
