Eugene Lee Hamilton. (1845–1907)
 
 
1
    The hollow sea-shell, which for years hath stood
On dusty shelves, when held against the ear
Proclaims its stormy parent, and we hear
The faint, far murmur of the breaking flood.
We hear the sea. 1 The Sea? It is the blood
In our own veins, impetuous and near.
          Sonnet. Sea-shell Murmurs.
