MARGARETHA, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: In the waves the sun declining
Last Line: Thou'rt my vision, margaretha!
Subject(s): Love

IN the waves the sun declining,
Heaven's last wild splendor shining;
Slow from earth the day is stealing,
Evening bells afar are pealing:
Thou'rt my vision, Margaretha!

Leaned against the cliff I stand,
Stranger in a stranger land;
At my feet the waves are foaming,
Through my soul a dream comes roaming:
Thou'rt my vision, Margaretha!
