THE TWO OCEANS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Two seas, amid the night
Last Line: Ne'er knew the track of a pilot.
Subject(s): Rest; Sea; Sleep; Ocean

Two seas, amid the night,
In the moonshine roll and sparkle--
Now spread in the silver light,
Now sadden, and wail, and darkle.
The one has a billowy motion,
And from land to land it gleams;
The other is sleep's wide ocean,
And its glimmering waves are dreams.
The one, with murmur and roar,
Bears fleets around coast and islet;
The other, without a shore,
Ne'er knew the track of a pilot.
