George William Curtis. 1824–1892
 
151. "O listen to the sounding sea"
 
O LISTEN to the sounding sea 
  That beats on the remorseless shore, 
O listen! for that sound will be 
  When our wild hearts shall beat no more. 
  
O listen well and listen long!         5
  For sitting folded close to me, 
You could not hear a sweeter song 
  Than that hoarse murmur of the sea.
