Everything Changes

Versions: #1#2
That which is superficial changes
Also that which is profound
the way of thinking changes
Everything in this world changes
 
The weather changes as the years go by
The shepherd changes his flock
and just as everything changes
the fact that I change it's not in the least strange
 
The finest diamond changes its brightness
as it travels from hand to hand
the bird changes its nest
So does a lover change the way he feels
 
The traveler changes his path
even if this proves to be harmfull
and just as everything changes
the fact that I change it's not in the least strange
 
Changes, everything changes
 
The sun changes its course
to give way to the night
The plant changes and gets dressed in green
during spring
 
The beast changes its fur
the hair of an old person changes
and just as everything changes
the fact that I change it's not in the least strange
 
But my love doesn't change
no matter how far away I find myself
neither the memory nor the pain
of my country and my people
 
What changed yesterday
will have to change tomorrow
Just as I change
in this foreign land
 
Changes, everything changes
 
But my love doesn't change
no matter how far away I find myself
neither the memory nor the pain
of my country and my people
 
Changes, everything changes

This song is somehow like a poem of Tennyson, can anyone tell me its name? Also, a poem of his about an abandoned house. Thanks a lot
