Excerpt from Children of Fancy: Poems

The tide is now at the ebb and I hear it swirling among the rocks and regurgitating in ceaseless eddyings through the long weed, that waits with slender, tensile fingers to entangle and drag down some unwary swimmer. The wind is blowing in squalls, suddenly blackening the water and lightly carrying off the surface and blowing it to smoke; while behind me the grass and the young corn change in silvery patches with the passing gusts. But amid it all I see her little face, that with its great mysterious grey eyes still shines in undimmed beauty from the past, and to which these verses are dedicate. It was once, and it shall be again; the tide will return and the wind will fall away. I have not always known, but yesterday I climbed the Hills of the Mist, and shook the unyielding bars of the gates of Death; and then I knew; - What is one life in immortality?
