Sourced[edit]

  • A life on the ocean wave!
    A home on the rolling deep,
    Where the scattered waters rave,
    And the winds their revels keep!
    Like an eagle caged I pine
    On this dull unchanging shore:
    Oh give me the flashing brine,
    The spray and the tempest's roar!
    • A Life on the Ocean Wave, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
  • The cold blast at the casement beats;
    The window-panes are white;
    The snow whirls through the empty streets;
    It is a dreary night!
    • The Heart's Summer, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
  • When the night-wind bewaileth the fall of the year,
    And sweeps from the forest the leaves that are sere;
    I wake from my slumber and list to the roar
    And it saith to my spirit, "No more, never more!"
    • When the Night-wind bewaileth, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
