SEA AND SHORE, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: Have you marked how the sea with foam
Last Line: When the tide sets out to sea.
Subject(s): Farewell; Home; Love; Sea; Singing & Singers; Parting; Ocean; Songs


HAVE you marked how the sea with foam
At the kiss of the shore turns white?
She has found a love and a home;
Then why should she lack delight?

A thought lies cold at her heart,
Till she pales all suddenly;
For she knows they must part, must part,
When the tide sets out to sea.
