Fish of the Flood
By Emilia Stuart Lorimer
FISH of the flood, on the bankèd billow
    Thou layest thy head in dreams;
Sliding as slides thy shifting pillow,
    One with the streams
        Of the sea is thy spirit.        5
Gean-tree, thou spreadest thy foaming flourish
    Abroad in the sky so grey;
It not heeding if it thee nourish,
    Thou dost obey,
        Happy, its moving.        10
So, God, thy love it not needeth me,
Only thy life, that I blessèd be.
