ALFRED LORD TENNYSON: "She Is Coming, My Own, My Sweet"

"She Is Coming, My Own, My Sweet"

(From “Moud”, Part I, Section XXII)
She is coming, my own, my sweet;
   Were it ever so airy a tread,
My heart would hear and beat,
   Were it earth in an earthy bed,
My dust would hear her and beat,
   Had I lain for a century dead,
Would start and tremble under her feet,
   And blossom in purple and red.
