I would like to ask somebody to explain to me what thy have vanished nameless means. Could the author mean something like, you meant nothing, you died without achieving nothing in your life?
Hark to the echo of Time’s footsteps; gone
Thise moments are into the unseen grave
Of ages. Thy have vanished nameless. None,
While they are deep under the eddying wave
Of the chaotic past, shall placea stone
Sacred to these, the nurses of the brave,
The mighty, and the good.
Thoma Lovell Beddoes, A Clock Striking Midnight, 183?
