Henry Newbolt (Генри Ньюболт)

From Generation to Generation

O Son of mine, when dusk shall find thee bending
  Between a gravestone and a cradle's head---
Between the love whose name is loss unending
  And the young love whose thoughts are liker dread,---
Thou too shalt groan at heart that all thy spending
  Cannot repay the dead, the hungry dead.

  1. The Death of Admiral Blake
  2. Moonset
  3. The Quarter-Gunner’s Yarn
  4. Northumberland
  5. For a Trafalgar Cenotaph
