Grey Rocks, And Greyer Sea

By Sir Charles George Douglas 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.
