THE VOICE OF THE SEA, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: In the hush of the autumn night
Last Line: And it all was long ago!
Subject(s): Sea; Ocean


IN the hush of the autumn night
I hear the voice of the sea,
In the hush of the autumn night
It seems to say to me --
Mine are the winds above,
Mine are the caves below,
Mine are the dead of yesterday
And the dead of long ago!

And I think of the fleet that sailed
From the lovely Gloucester shore,
I think of the fleet that sailed
And came back nevermore!
My eyes are filled with tears,
And my heart is numb with woe --
It seems as if 't were yesterday,
And it all was long ago!
