By Robert Southey (1774–1843)

(From Madoc)

SO for the place of meeting they set forth;

And now they reached Melangell’s lonely church:

Amid a grove of evergreens it stood,

A garden and a grove, where every grave

Was decked with flowers, or with unfading plants

O’ergrown,—sad rue and funeral rosemary.
