by James Stephens (1882 - 1950)
The sky-like girl whom we knew! She dressed herself to go to the fair In a dress of white and blue ; A white lace cap, and ribbons white She wore in her hair ; She does not hear in the night Her mother crying for her, Where, Deep down in the sea, She rolls and lingers to and fro Unweariedly.
