THE CLIFFS AT NEWPORT, by            
First Line: O newport! Chosen sweetheart of the sea
Last Line: From one who hopes, and, trusting, waits for me.
Subject(s): Newport, Rhode Island


O NEWPORT! chosen sweetheart of the sea,
Wooed by the waves at each returning tide;
The strong rocks guard thee, lest thou daintily
Shouldst, slipping 'twixt their crags, flee as his bride.

O waves! that beat upon a hopeless shore,
That ask and call, and, weeping, turn again,
So shall you rise and fall forevermore,
Nor even time shall bring you joy for pain.

Within the silent chamber of my heart
It is as with the city and the sea;
For Fate is strong, and holds me still apart
From one who hopes, and, trusting, waits for me.
