Subject(s): Courtship; Jealousy


Green walls of waves that tower up,
Great whorls of waves that curl and crash,
Swift whirls of spray in the billows' cup,
Bright nets of spume that coil and splash!

They sighing surge and soughing sob,
Sonorous, raucous, snarling host;
The sea is one terrific throb --
How still the dunes along the coast!
