SEEMING FAILURE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: O wave upon the strand
Last Line: "alone was sacrificed."
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Life

O wave upon the strand!
What urges thee in vain
To lift the baffled hand
In suppliance again?

"The passion that impels
The tidal energies
In every bud that swells,
In every soul that sighs:

"The same that on the cross
Sustained the dying Christ,
When Love for seeming loss
Alone was sacrificed."
