The Splendour Falls on Castle Walls

Memory and the Past Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

     O love, they die in yon rich sky,
          They faint on hill or field or river (13-14)

The speaker personifies the echoes when he says that they "die" and "faint." But all this talking about "dying" and "fainting" is starting to bum us out… it makes us think about our own mortality!
