I SHALL HAVE PEACE AGAIN (WRITTEN AFTER READING 'RIDERS TO THE SEA', by            
First Line: Now all are gone. The sea can do no more
Last Line: For all are gone. I shall have peace again.
Subject(s): Sea; Ocean


Now all are gone. The sea can do no more
Than it has done to me in these past years.
Life is again as tranquil as before
They came to me, who filled my heart with fears.
No longer need I watch the shore at night
When the great storms rage, wild, across the bay;
Or place before the leaded pane a light;
Or kneel with aching heart and vainly pray.
All grief that I shall ever know is past,
For yesterday at dawn they brought to me,
Wrapped in a sail and fastened to a mast,
The last of all those taken by the sea.
Now will my weary heart be free from pain
For all are gone. I shall have peace again.
