The Answer
By Agnes Lee
    WAVE, wave,
    You seem to be dreaming—
    Wave, wave—
    In the sunbeams warm.
    Wave, wave,        5
    What are you, what are you—
    Wave, wave—
    Of the changing form?
I am a round bright beautiful wave.
All day with my ripples the shore I pave.        10
    Wave, wave,
    They say you are pitiless—
    Wave, wave—
    When the ships outroam.
    Wave, wave,        15
    They call you a savior—
    Wave, wave—
    When the ships come home.
I have no thought for a life or a grave.
I am a round bright beautiful wave.        20
