Songs of the Sea Children

by Bliss Carman




Once when the winds of spring came home
From the far countries where they roam, 
I heard them tell 
Of things I could not understand, 
And strange adventures in a land

Where all was well.

I do not wonder any more 
What Autumn at his open door 
Is dreaming of;

I am so happy to have done 
With all the things underneath the sun 
Save only love.
