Paul Hamilton Hayne (Пол Гамильтон Хейн)


“The Old Man of the Sea”


GRIEVOUS, in sooth, was luckless Sindbad's plight,
Saddled with that foul monster of the sea;
But who of some soul-harrowing weight is free?
And though we veil our woe from public sight,
Full many a weary day and dismal night,
It chafes our spirits sorely! Yet, for thee,
Whate'er, O friend, thy special grief may be,
Range thou against it all thy manhood's might.
Thus, though thou may'st not smite on brow or breast
That irksome incubus, be sure some day
The load that blights shall droop and fall away,
And thou, because of torture borne so well,
Shall pass from out thy long, malign unrest
And walk thy future paths invincible!



Paul Hamilton Hayne's other poems:
  1. A Morning after Storm
  2. In Harbor
  3. The True Heaven
  4. Under the Pine
  5. A Plea for the Gray
