And the loved one all together!
          Never the Time and the Place.

By Man than comes of music.

Come when you’re looked for, or come without warning.

As our souls flow in one down eternity’s river.

    A life on the ocean wave!
  A home on the rolling deep,
Where the scattered waters rave,
  And the winds their revels keep!
Like an eagle caged I pine
  On this dull unchanging shore:
Oh give me the flashing brine,
  The spray and the tempest’s roar!
          A Life on the Ocean Wave.
7155
    The cold blast at the casement beats;
  The window-panes are white;
The snow whirls through the empty streets;
  It is a dreary night!
          The Heart’s Summer.
