Rest in Peace, Old Teacher

So we’ll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart be still as loving,
And the moon be still as bright.
For the sword outwears its sheath,
And the soul outwears the breast,
And the heart must pause to breathe,
And love itself have rest.
Though the night was made for loving,
And the day returns too soon,
Yet we’ll go no more a-roving
By the light of the moon.

That was written by lord Byron, and sung by Irving's friend Leonard Cohen, for Irving, in 2004. Rest in peace, old teacher.
