NEWPORT BEACH, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Wave after wave successively rolls on
Last Line: In one o'erwhelming surge!
Subject(s): Newport, Rhode Island

WAVE after wave successively rolls on
And dies along the shore, until more loud
One billow with concentrate force is heard
To swell prophetic, and exultant rears
A lucent form above its pioneers,
And rushes past them to the farthest goal.
Thus our unuttered feelings rise and fall,
And thought will follow thought in equal waves,
Until reflection nerves design to will,
Or sentiment o'er chance emotion reigns,
And all its wayward undulations blend
In one o'erwhelming surge!
