Well I Remember How You Smiled
By Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)
WELL I remember how you smiled
  To see me write your name upon
The soft sea-sand. ‘O! what a child!
  You think you’re writing upon stone!’
I have since written what no tide        5
  Shall ever wash away, what men
Unborn shall read o’er ocean wide
  And find Ianthe’s name again.
