Songs of the Sea Children
LIII. ‘I think the sun, when he turns at night’
By Bliss Carman (1861–1929)
I THINK the sun, when he turns at night
And lays his face against the sea’s,
Must have such thoughts as these.
I think the wind, when he wakes at dawn,
Must wonder, seeing hill by hill,        5
That they can sleep so still.
