Lonely Sky and Sea
By Marjorie Meeker
From “Songs of Night”

O LONELY, lonely sky and sea—
  Where time is a wind that plays between,
Blowing the colored centuries by,
  Tiny tragedies, quaint and mean—
Why are you waiting? What have you heard?        5
  What majestic thing have you known,
That you watch each other, listening,
  So long, so long alone?
