Sea Weed
Thanks for thy gift
    Of ocean flowers,
  Born where the golden drift
  Of the slant sunshine falls
  Down the green, tremulous walls
Of water, to the cool still coral bowers,
Where, under rainbows of perpetual showers,
  God’s gardens of the deep
  His patient angels keep;
Gladdening the dim, strange solitude
  With fairest forms and hues.
        Whittier.—To A. K.
