SONNET: 9, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Strong saturation of sea! O widely flown
Last Line: Toll for life's lost, irrevocable hours.
Subject(s): Sea; Ocean


Strong saturation of sea! O widely flown,.
Far winds of fall, your litanies of pain
Moan like the music of a wild refrain
Heard thro' the midnight of a feudal town!
Young night is lipped with jasper where the blown
Burden of evening lights intensely wane,
And, shuddering seaward from the tawny plain,
Vague fold on fold the enormous dark comes down.
Gusty and fervid as the sleepless sea
The passionate fancies of a formless fear
Spring in my nervous brain like monstrous flowers;
The night, the wind-chant work their will of me,
And thoughts like death-bells echoing far and near,
Toll for life's lost, irrevocable hours.
