From Childe Roland:
As when a sick man very near to death
Seems dead indeed, and feels begin and end
The tears and takes the farewell of each friend,
And hears one bid the other go, draw breath
Freelier outside, (“since all is o’er,” he saith,
“And the blow fallen no grieving can amend;”)
What is the meaning of this phrase? Does it mean that he somehow feels that the mourners begin crying, and then stop crying?
