Bring her again, O western wind, Over the western sea: Gentle and good and fair and kind, Bring her again to me! Not that her fancy holds me dear, Not that a hope may be: Only that I may know her near, Wind of the western sea.

?. The full sea rolls and thunders  [sung text not yet checked]
The full sea rolls and thunders In glory and in glee. O, bury me not in the senseless earth But in the living sea! Ay, bury me where it surges A thousand miles from shore, And in its brotherly unrest I'll range for evermore.
