How wistfully then we look on the night.
As the threatening clouds go by
As the wind gets up and tho lust faint light,

When tho signs of tho storm arc found,

We roved o'er tho lowlund lea ;
And I thought my lovo for that one on land
Was as earnest as love could ho.
But now thnt he huth gone on tide,

And I think of tho waters deep and w ide,
As I bask on tho flowers on shore.

With a drcuin of a ship going down.

But my fancy conjured the breaker and rock,

But wait till tho loved ono is from the main,
