TATI’s & TONY’s DEAD POET TOUR // On A Friend Who Died Suddenly Upon The Seashore by J. D. C. Fellow

 Quiet he lived, and quietly died;
Nor, like the unwilling tide,
Did once complain or strive
To stay one brief hour more alive.
But as a summer wave
Serenely for a while
Will lift a crest to the sun,
Then sink again, so he
Back to the bright heavens gave
An answering smile;
Then quietly, having run
His course, bowed down his head,
And sank unmurmuringly,
Sank back into the sea,
The silent, the unfathomable sea
Of all the happy dead.

  1. I want to comment. I really do. But I don’t know what this is about. Did someone you know really die? Is this a real poem or one you wrote yourself (not that it makes it any less real, I guess)? And… uh, actually I think that’s all I need to know.
    Oh, wait – John Dynham Cornish Pellow MBE (1890–1960) was an English poet and civil servant.
    I’m that case: y’all have a nice day. 😃

  2. Ode To The Poor Fellow/ To he who’d swim/This stretch of beach-/Please earnestly caution him-/Be sound of limb/And don’t overreach. To he who’s died/Taking a casual dip/ Didn’t heed this tip/Remember time and tide/And avoid the rip.
