A FATHER TO HIS SON
Thy name, dear son, is richly blazened in
The lasting annals of an ancient line,
Thy fame is as the noblest of thy kin,
Because thou knowest all men's hearts to win
Thou treadest now the Lawns of Asphodel,
With all the good and great, thy peers who spell
Out, loud and clear for all to hear,
Those brave, bright, noble deeds of thine,
That we in dear remembrance keep,
Until the Gods their harvest reap.
In honorem ac piam memoriam filii sui carissimi haec scripsit.
The above poem was written by
Dr. Geoffrey Severin Anthony Feiling
in honour of his deceased son, poet and writer,
Charles Edward Anthony Feiling
