SEASIDE SONG: 2, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The day is down into his bower
Last Line: And whisper all her dreams to me!
Alternate Author Name(s): Meredith, Owen; Lytton, 1st Earl Of; Lytton, Robert
Variant Title(s): Serenade
Subject(s): Sea; Absence; Love; Ocean; Separation; Isolation

The day is down into his bower:
In languid lights his feet he steeps:
The flusht sky darkens, low and lower,
And closes on the glowing deeps.

In creeping curves of yellow foam
Up shallow sands the waters slide:
And warmly blow what whispers roam
From isle to isle the lulled tide:

The boats are drawn: the nets drip bright:
Dark casements gleam: old songs are sung:
And out upon the verge of night
Green lights from lonely rocks are hung.

O winds of eve that somewhere rove
Where darkest sleeps the distant sea,
Seek out where haply dreams my love,
And whisper all her dreams to me!
