The Mourner
By Charles Granville
From “Poems of the Hour”

O SEA, whose tides are as eternity,
  Whose ebb and flow survive all human pain!
O timeless sea! heal now this wound of time
  That my life-tide may flow in hope again:
But if, though willing, thou art impotent,        5
  Beseech in pity the bland, pain-rid moon
That she will take unto herself this heart,
  And in her bosom fashion it to stone.
