On the Beach at Fontana
By James Joyce
WIND whines and whines the shingle,
The crazy pier-stakes groan;
A senile sea numbers each single
Slime-silvered stone.
From whining wind and colder        5
Grey sea I wrap him warm,
And touch his fine-boned boyish shoulder
And trembling arm.
Around us fear, descending,
Darkness of fear above;        10
And in my heart how sweet unending
Ache of love.
