I'M dead, and yet must thole the sleepless surge.
When billows threw me battered on the sands,
By spouting reefs I found, beside the verge
Of mine old foe, a grave at strangers' hands;
But still among the dead am I distressed
To hear the boom and thunder of the seas:
Not even Hades couches me to rest;
Alone of ghosts I cannot lie at ease.
