Tabb Centenary Year LIV

A quatrain on Alfred Lord Tennyson by Rev. John B. Tabb.

Alfred Tennyson

The lordliest at Arthurís Table Round
   No loftier than thou,
The laureate, with Englandís glory crowned,
   Whom death has knighted now.

November 1892 (p. 350, Quatrains: Persons)

[Alfred Lord Tennyson, the United Kingdom's poet laureate, died this day, 1892. The Round Table of King Arthur was used by the king and his knights in council.]

The references (page number and section) are to The Poetry of Father Tabb, ed. Francis A. Litz, Ph.D. (New York: Dodd, Mead & Company, 1928). All of Tabb's poems published here in the Father Tabb Centenary Year were originally published before 1923.

Biblical references link to the New Advent Bible comprising Bishop Challoner's edition of the Douay-Rheims Bible (English) and the Sixto-Clementine edition of the Vulgate (Latin), since they are the versions which Father Tabb would have used as a Catholic.

The year 2009 is the centenary of the death of Rev. John Banister Tabb, November 19, 1909.
