Pillared Arch and Sculptured Tower

Thomas Bailey Aldrich 1836 (Portsmouth) – 1907 (Boston)



Pillared arch and sculptured tower
Of Ilium have had their hour;
The dust of many a king is blown
On the winds from zone to zone;
Many a warrior sleeps unknown.
Time and Death each hold in thrall,
Yet is Love the lord of all;
Still does Helen's beauty stir
Because a poet sang of her!
