Low Tide on Grand Pré: A Book of Lyrics

by Bliss Carman


 

A SEA CHILD


 

THE lover of child Marjory
    Had one whit hour of life brim full;
Now the old nurse, the rocking sea,
     Hath him to lull.

The daughter of child Marjory

5
     Hath in her veins, to beat and run,
The glad indomitable sea,
     The strong white sun.
