"O sweet, how wildly I have searched for you,
Ever since first I felt my sharp-prowed bark
Of death scrape lightly on the glittering blue
Crescent of heaven's edge, and scanned the arc
Of shore for sight of you, where all was stark,
Shining and empty: yet I did not fear;
I thought: 'Soon I shall find him, as a lark
Finds the great sky, and sooner will he hear
My heart's glad carol mounting to him blithe and clear."
