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.
