1
    Crowds of bees are giddy with clover
  Crowds of grasshoppers skip at our feet,
Crowds of larks at their matins hang over,
  Thanking the Lord for a life so sweet.
          Divided.
2
    But two are walking apart forever
  And wave their hands for a mute farewell.
          Divided.
3
    A sweeter woman ne’er drew breath
Than my sonne’s wife, Elizabeth.
          The High Tide on the Coast of Lincolnshire.
4
    Man dwells apart, though not alone,
  He walks among his peers unread;
The best of thoughts which he hath known
  For lack of listeners are not said.
          Afterthought.
5
    How short our happy days appear!
  How long the sorrowful!
          The Mariner’s Cave.
6
    To bear, to nurse, to rear,
  To watch and then to lose,
To see my bright ones disappear,
  Drawn up like morning dews.
          Songs of Seven. Seven times Six.
