William Wilfred Campbell, comp.  The Oxford Book of Canadian Verse.  1913.
By Arthur Leonard Phelps (1887–1970)
SEA song and wind song,
  Meadows that lie
Tinted half like the sea,
  Half like the sky.
This till the conjuror,        5
  Far, far away,
Conjuring, sudden brings
  Red from the grey.
Then mark ye magic work—
  Here at my feet,        10
Wind-flowers look up again,
  Fair faces sweet.
And round the crag’s grey top
  Sea-birds in sun—
Light on the pearly wings!        15
  Day is begun!
