O’ Sailor Come Ashore

O’ Sailor Come Ashore
after Christina Rossetti

O’ sailor come ashore
What have you brought for me?
The bodies of our young men
Drag them from the sea.

I did not dig them from the ground
Nor pluck them from a tree
Our youth, our dreams full fathom five
Into the stormy sea.

 

 

 

For DeeDee Doherty RIP.
