by Walter De la Mare (1873 - 1956)

Language: English 
The sea laments 
The livelong day. 
Fringing its waste of sand ; 
Cries back the wind from the whispering shore 
No words I understand : 
Yet echoes in my heart a voice, 
As far, as near, as these 
The wind that weeps, 
The solemn surge 
Of strange and lonely seas.
