I love all things that cluster round the sea:
Sand-dunes wave washed, and glad wild wings that beat
Against the wind, the flash of children's feet,
Rude huddled huts, driftwood, grass blowing free,
Seines in the sun and spars of hickory,
Great ships slow moving, and boats small and neat,
Old mossy wrecks that once were sound and fleet,
Half hidden by a pine or bayberry tree.
But when the tired feet have homeward gone,
And from the huts blue smoke curls towards the sky,
And yellow lights gleam on the waters gray,
There comes a peace as soothing as the dawn
As one by one the little boats go by
And drop their anchors in the quiet bay.
