SEA VOICES, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: O'er the wintry sea
Last Line: Claim me evermore.
Subject(s): Grief; Sea; Sorrow; Sadness; Ocean

O'ER the wintry sea,
Mingled with its tone
Comes a voice to me,
That's not the sea's own.
Low and soft it is,
Near and far away --
Sad as winds that kiss
The sea beyond the bay.
Soulless, restless, swell,
0 what radiant guest,
Sad, invisible,
Hovers o'er thy breast?
Gray rocks and gray sea,
Stretch of barren shore,
Grief and memory
Claim me evermore.
