On the Death of Leopold: King of the Belgians
A King is dead! Another master mind Is summoned from the world-wide council hall. Ah, for some seer, to say what links behind— To read the mystic writing on the wall! Be still, fond man: nor ask thy fate to know. Face bravely what each God-sent moment brings. Above thee rules in love, through weal and woe, Guiding thy kings and thee, the King of kings.
Windsor Castle, November 10, 1865
