AMORIS VICTIMA: 10, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The white foam rushes back into the night
Last Line: Across the wind and moonlight of the sea?
Subject(s): Love - Loss Of


The white foam rushes back into the night
Of waters; far behind, I see the light
Of ships that come from England; and the sky
Blots out the world beyond. Would God that I
Could so blot out the past I hurry from
Into oblivion and a little foam,
And make for new horizons, as our ship
Sets forward, with the stars for fellowship!
O woman, am I not, for this one hour
Of triumphing waters, freer of your power?
You, lost and left, with England, far behind
The spacious freedom of the sea and wind,
Is it not as a ghost you come to me
Across the wind and moonlight of the sea?
