Does any one know the title to this Lord Byron poem!?
"At the end of all the ages,
a Knight sat on his steed;
his armor red and thin with rust,
his soul from sorrow freed!.
He lifted up a visor,
from a face of skin and bone;
and his horse turned head and whinnied,
as the twain stood there, alone!.
No bird above that steep of time,
sang of a life-long quest;
no wind breathed,
"Lone for an end!" cried knight to steed,
loosed an eager rein;
charged with his challenge into space,
and quiet did quiet remain!."
~ Lord Byron ~

The Song of Finis
Walter de la Mare
1873 - 1956
AT the edge of All the Ages
A Knight sate on his steed,
His armor red and thin with rust
His soul from sorrow freed;
And he lifted up his visor
From a face of skin and bone,
And his horse turned head and whinnied
As the twain stood there alone!.
No bird above that steep of time
Sang of a livelong quest;
No wind breathed,
"Lone for an end!" cried Knight to steed,
Loosed an eager rein--
Charged with his challenge into space:
And quiet did quiet remain!. Www@QuestionHome@Com
