Volume V. Nature.  1904.
 
VII. The Sea
The Shore
Sir Charles George Douglas Roberts (1860–1943)
 
From “Ariadne”

HUNG like a rich pomegranate o’er the sea
  The ripened moon; along the trancèd sand
The feather-shadowed ferns drooped dreamfully;
The solitude’s evading harmony
  Mingled remotely over sea and land;        5
A light wind woke and whispered warily,
  And myriad ripples tinkled on the strand.
