Leaves
Under which the bright sea heaves,
While each breathless interval
In their whisperings musical
The inspired soul supplies
With its own deep melodies.

SHELLEY.

God's own profound
Was above me, and round me the mountains,

And under, the sea ;
And within me, my heart, to bear witness
What was and shall be.

BROWNING,

.

How sweet it were
To hear each other's whispered specch;
Eating the Lotos day by day,
To watch the crisping ripples on the beach,
And tender curving lines of creamy spray.
To lend our hearts and spirits wholly
To the influence of mild-minded melancholy
To muse and brood, and live again in memory.

TenXYSON.

That hears all night
The plunging seas draw backward from the land
Their moon-led waters white.

TENNYSON.

And the great sea-waves below,
Pulse o' the midnight, beating slow.

WHITTIER.
