Sorley's Weather

Yet rest there, Shelley, on the sill,
For though the winds come frorely
I'm away to the rain-blown hill
And the ghost of Sorley.

Charles Hamilton Sorley 1895-1915

From "Sorley's Weather" by Captain Robert Graves (Fairies and Fusiliers, 1917) which ends with the above. See also Rhiannon's link of 4 October 2005 here - where she writes, "The WW1 poet Charles Hamilton Sorley (only 20 when he died) wrote this poem about Barbury Castle."
