by William Ernest Henley (1849 - 1903)

Bring her again, O western wind
Language: English 
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.
