Sea & Sky


The Wanderer  by Zoe Akins (1886 – 1958)


The ships are lying in the bay,
     The gulls are swinging round their spars;
My soul as eagerly as they
     Desires the margin of the stars.

So much do I love wandering,
     So much I love the sea and sky,
That it will be a piteous thing
     In one small grave to lie.
