A SEA-PRAYER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Lord of wind and water
Last Line: Sea-lord -- all are thine.
Subject(s): Sea; Ocean

LORD of wind and water
Where the ships go down
Reaching to the sunrise,
Lifting like a crown,
Out of the deep-hidden
Wells of night and day --
Mind the great sea-farers
On the open way.
When the last lights darken
On the far coastline,
Wave and port and peril
Sea-Lord -- all are thine.
