1
    The sea! the sea! the open sea!
The blue, the fresh, the ever free!
          The Sea.
2
    I ’m on the sea! I ’m on the sea!
I am where I would ever be,
With the blue above and the blue below,
And silence wheresoe’er I go.
          The Sea.
3
    I never was on the dull, tame shore,
But I loved the great sea more and more.
          The Sea.
4
    Touch us gently, Time! 1
  Let us glide adown thy stream
Gently,—as we sometimes glide
  Through a quiet dream.
          Touch us gently, Time.
 
Note 1.
See Crabbe, Quotation 13. [back]
