First Line: I saw you in the gloaming, love
Last Line: But all my wealth awaited me low-voiced and gentle-handed, love.
Subject(s): Love; Homecoming


I saw you in the gloaming, love,
When all the fleets were homing, love,
And under the large level moon the long grey seas were combing, love.
I saw you tall and splendid, love,
And all my griefs were ended, love,
When on me, as I put to land, your seaward eyes were bended, love.
The little boats were stranded, love,
And all their rich bales landed, love;
But all my wealth awaited me low-voiced and gentle-handed, love.
