In Memoriam A. H. H.: 11. Calm is the morn without a sound

Calm is the morn without a sound,
  Calm as to suit a calmer grief,
  And only thro' the faded leaf
  The chestnut pattering to the ground:
  Calm and deep peace on this high wold,
  And on these dews that drench the furze.
  And all the silvery gossamers
  That twinkle into green and gold:
  Calm and still light on yon great plain
  That sweeps with all its autumn bowers,
  And crowded farms and lessening towers,
  To mingle with the bounding main:

  Calm and deep peace in this wide air,
  These leaves that redden to the fall;
  And in my heart, if calm at all,
  If any calm, a calm despair:

  Calm on the seas, and silver sleep,
  And waves that sway themselves in rest,
  And dead calm in that noble breast
  Which heaves but with the heaving deep.
