Do you know the story behind the poem?

Victor Hugo's daughter Leopoldine was married to Charles Vacquerie in February 1843, and in September she drowned with her husband. In this poem, 'Tomorrow, At Dawn', written on the fourth anniversary of her death, Hugo depicted his walk to the place where she was buried:
"I shall not look on the gold of evening falling
Nor on the sails descending distant towards Harfleur,
And when I come, shall lay upon your grave
A bouquet of green holly and of flowering briar."
