1Where is the grave of Sir Arthur O'Kellyn?
2Where may the grave of that good man be?--
3By the side of a spring, on the breast of Helvellyn,
4Under the twigs of a young birch tree!
5The oak that in summer was sweet to hear,
6And rustled its leaves in the fall of the year,
7And whistled and roared in the winter alone,
8Is gone,--and the birch in its stead is grown.--
9The Knight's bones are dust,
10And his good sword rust;--
11His soul is with the saints, I trust.
