IX
By the Sea. "I Thought of You"
 

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
  And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
  As you and I once heard their monotone.

Around me were the echoing dunes, beyond me
  The cold and sparkling silver of the sea --
We two will pass through death and ages lengthen
  Before you hear that sound again with me.
