Her Name
By Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)
 
WELL I remember how you smiled
  To see me write your name upon
The soft sea-sand … ‘O, what a child!
  You think you’re writing upon stone!’
 
I have since written what no tide        5
  Shall ever wash away; what men
Unborn shall read o’er ocean wide
  And find Ianthe’s name again.
