- North from the beautiful islands,
North from the headlands and highlands,
The long sea-wall,
The white ships flee with the swallow;
The day-beams follow and follow,
Glitter and fall.
- Gloucester Harbor
- Now that the wind is tamed and broken,
And day gleams over the lea,
Row, row, for the one you love
Was out on the raging sea:
Row, row, row,
Sturdy and brave o’er the treacherous wave,
Hope like a beacon before,
Row, sailor, row
Out to the sea from the shore!
- After the Storm
- Over the ships that are anchored,
Over the fleets that part,
Over the cities dark by the shore,
High as a dream thou art!
- The Sea-Gull
