First Line: The storm came monday night. On wednesday we
Last Line: Just to be sure
Subject(s): Whales

The storm came Monday night. On Wednesday we
Took wreaths to the point and flung them in the sea.

The sun shone, and the waves -- oh, how they sparkled!
Even the gulls' shrillness seemed sweet that day.

Sweet too the piquancy upon the breeze
Of stranded whale, burnt oil, and ambergris.
