Poem by Sidney Lanier
Hymns of the Marshes. 3. Marsh Song - At Sunset
OVER the monstrous shambling sea, Over the Caliban sea, Bright Ariel-cloud, thou lingerest: Oh wait, oh wait, in the warm red West,-- Thy Prospero I'll be. Over the humped and fishy sea, Over the Caliban sea O cloud in the West, like a thought in the heart Of pardon, loose thy wing, and start, And do a grace for me. Over the huge and huddling sea, Over the Caliban sea, Bring hither my brother Antonio,--Man,-- My injurer: night breaks the ban; Brother, I pardon thee.
