SONG ON THE WATER (2), by             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
Ghostlily:
So our boat breaks the water
Witchingly.

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