Charles G. D. Roberts: Grey Rocks, and Greyer Sea

Grey Rocks, and Greyer Sea

Charles G. D. Roberts

Grey rocks, and greyer sea,  And surf along the shore — And in my heart a name  My lips shall speak no more.
The high and lonely hills  Endure the darkening year — And in my heart endure  A memory and a tear.
Across the tide a sail  That tosses, and is gone — And in my heart the kiss  That longing dreams upon.
Grey rocks, and greyer sea,  And surf along the shore — And in my heart the face  That I shall see no more.
