CHILD ELSIE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: For love of the sea, child elsie
Last Line: Afar from the fishing town.
Subject(s): Sea; Ocean

FOR love of the sea, Child Elsie,
Untethered the dory's rope,
To ride with native impulse
The water's rise and slope.
For love of the seaman's maiden,
The mew-tides running down,
Swept out to sea the dory
Afar from the fishing town.
