Poem by Mary Robinson


Sonnet 22. Wild Is the Foaming Sea


Wild is the foaming Sea! The surges roar!
And nimbly dart the livid lightnings round!
On the rent rock the angry waves rebound;
Ah me! the lessning bark is seen no more!
Along the margin of the trembling shore,
Loud as the blast my frantic cries shall sound,
My storm-drenchd limbs the flinty fragments wound,
And oer my bleeding breast the billows pour!
Phaon! return! ye winds, O! waft the strain
To his swift bark; ye barbrous waves forbear!
Taunt not the anguish of a lovers brain,
Nor feebly emulate the souls despair!
For howling winds, and foaming seas, in vain
Assail the breast, when passion rages there!
