The Message
By Margaret Sackville
 
“OH, have you not a message, you who come over the sea?
Have you not a message or word at all for me?”
 
“I have sailed, sailed, sailed where the seas are green and blue,
I ’ve silver, gold and merchandise—but never a word for you.”
 
“But did you see my love by any way you came?        5
For if you saw my love, he must have spoke my name.”
 
“Oh, yes, I saw your love—oh, yes, and he was gay
Riding in his coach-and-six all on his birthday.”
 
“But when you spoke of me, of me—oh! what was it he said?”
“Oh, he never said a word at all, but turned away his head.”        10
