Home        The Garden        Evening Star          Transparent             Serenade            Second Love   

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,

And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
 
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,

While I weep- while I weep!

O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?

O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
 

 

 

 

 


Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
