… The wind and waves, forever rift,

Though kinsfolk ever one.

They tumble and toss, and churn and sift

To every form but calm…

… The plainness of his dry-weeds way

That stirs inside the wind

Is stranger not, not faraway,

From waves that splash and swim.

… Entreats again her surging sea

To stir his sleepiness:

Her secret hidden mystery

Has woke him with a kiss.

… And out he steps upon the sea,

The foolish thought to dare,

Or courage take, whatever it be,

He sets his foot out there.

… Now, falling through the fainting wave

Is not the major thing,

But that one has set out at all

Invite the victor’s ring— !!!
