SONG ON THE WATER (2), by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: As mad sexton's bell, tolling
Last Line: Moonily.
Subject(s): Sailing & Sailors; Love; Seamen; Sails

As mad sexton's bell, tolling
For earth's loveliest daughter
Night's dumbness breaks rolling
So our boat breaks the water

As her look the dream troubles
Of her tearful-eyed lover.
So our sails in the bubbles
Are mirrored and hover
