Here you will find the Poem Dirge OF Nelson of poet William Lisle Bowles
Toll Nelson's knell! a soul more brave Ne'er triumphed on the green-sea wave! Sad o'er the hero's honoured grave, Toll Nelson's knell! The ball of Death unerring flew; His cheek has lost its ardent hue; He sinks, amid his gallant crew! Toll Nelson's knell! Yet lift, brave chief, thy dying eyes; Hark! loud huzzas around thee rise; Aloft the flag of conquest flies! The day is won! The day is won--peace to the brave! But whilst the joyous streamers wave, We'll think upon the victor's grave! Peace to the brave!
