The Splendour Falls on Castle Walls
by Alfred Lord Tennyson
The Splendour Falls on Castle Walls Immortality Quotes
How we cite our quotes: (Line)
And answer, echoes, answer, dying, dying, dying. (18)
The poem's last line suggests that the speaker really wants these echoes to remind him of immortality. He tells them to "answer," but the line ends with them "dying." So, maybe he's not as convinced as he'd like to be about the prospects of our immortality.
