NO voice of crickets wearing through the night
From skeins of dew in scented summer fields;
No sleep-time chirp of birds, no tree that yields
A solemn sigh when touched by breezes light.
Instead, a throb of engines in their might,
The scurrying seamen with their weird Yo-ho!
The creak of ropes, the lapping of sad waves,
That seem to grieve above forgotten graves,
And gossip on lost ships of long ago.
