First Line: We saw our shadows walking before us
Last Line: With the dark sea booming into the night.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Shadows


We saw our shadows walking before us
Etched on the hard sand, flat and grey,
The last thin edge of the waves crept near us,
The autumn sunshine tried to be gay.

Chained to the shadows our bodies made there
Slowly we walked in the dwindling light;
Our shadows faded, like wraiths we wandered
With the dark sea booming into the night.
