A life on the ocean wave! A home on the rolling deep; Where the scattered waters rave, And the winds their revels keep!
Epes Sargent, Life on the Ocean Wave.
A life on the ocean wave!A home on the rolling deep,Where the scattered waters rave,And the winds their revels keep!Like an eagle caged I pineOn this dull unchanging shore:Oh give me the flashing brine,The spray and the tempest's roar!Epes Sargent
The cold blast at the casement beats;The window-panes are white;The snow whirls through the empty streets;It is a dreary night!Epes Sargent
When the night-wind bewaileth the fall of the year,And sweeps from the forest the leaves that are sere;I wake from my slumber and list to the roarAnd it saith to my spirit, "No more, never more!"Epes Sargent
