Tennyson, A. L. (n.d.). The Talking Oak. Retrieved from


Excerpt: Once more the gate behind me falls; // Once more before my face // I see the moulder'd Abbey-walls, // That stand within the chace. // Beyond the lodge the city lies, // Beneath its drift of smoke; // And ah! with what delighted eyes // I turn to yonder oak. // For when my passion first began, // Ere that, which in me burn'd, // The love, that makes me thrice a man, // Could hope itself return'd; // To yonder oak within the field // I spoke without restraint, // And with a larger faith appeal'd // Than Papist unto Saint.
