ON DREAM WATER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: And so, o'er many a league of sea
Last Line: O soul so often tried!
Subject(s): Dreams; Nightmares


AND so, o'er many a league of sea
We sang of those we left behind.
Our ship split thro' the phosphor free,
Her white sails pregnant with the wind,
And I was wondering in my mind
How many would remember me.

Then red-edged dawn expanded wide,
A stony foreland stretched away,
And bowed capes gathering round the tide
Kept many a little homely bay.
O joy of living there for aye,
O Soul so often tried!
