Who fleeing from the Spring
The Spring avenging fling
To Dooms of Balm

Went to sea in a bowl;
If the bowl had been stronger
My song had been longer.

You quiver like a sea-fish.
I cover you with my net.
What are you - banded one?

Great lands stretching endlessly…
Where be bonds to bind the free?
All the world was made for me!

My Garden -- like the Beach

 My Garden -- like the Beach --
Denotes there be -- a Sea --
That's Summer --
Such as These -- the Pearls

 SAND of the sea runs red
Where the sunset reaches and quivers.

What wrecketh thee?
Some spice's Mutiny --
Some Attar's perfidy?
Confide in me.

Which was thrown in the sea
To catch fish for dinner
For you and for me.

Soft in my ear like music came.
That sea I loved, and once or twice I touched at isles of Paradise.

O'er the wide, wide sea,
Towards its many distant isles,
Rowing I set forth.
This, to all the world proclaim, O ye boats of fisher-folk!

SILENCE

'T is better to sit here beside the sea,
Here on the spray-kissed beach,
In silence, that between such friends as we
Is full of deepest speech.
