LAWRNA BEACH. STARLIGHT and the murmuring sea . And one low wave of memory welling Higher lifts and slowly swelling Trembles in obscurity,
Hangs and halts and falls asunder With a slow regretful thunder, Bringing back a wasting wonder And many bitter thoughts to me.
Once we two, the now long-parted, Elder-hearted, stony-hearted, Walked this very starlit shore, Sadly our own hearts misprizing, Watched an earlier wave uprising ... Alit—but vain all such surmising Even this wave is now no more!
