SAND, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Sterile sister though I be
Last Line: Breathing immortality.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Immortality; Seashore; Beach; Coast; Shore

Sterile sister though I be,
Twinborn to the barren sea,
Yet of all things fruitful we
Wait the end; and presently,
Lo, they are not! Then to me
(Children to the nurse's knee)
Come the billows fresh and free,
Breathing immortality.
