The ocean has its silent caves, Symbolism to life
Deep, quiet and alone;
Though there be fury on the waves,
Beneath them there is none.
The awful spirits of the deep
Hold their communion there;
And there are those for whom we weep,
The young, the bright, the fair.
Calmly the wearied seamen restAllusion of his late father(Apostrophe)
Beneath their own blue sea.
The ocean solitudes are blest, Repetition
For there is purity.
The earth has guilt, the earth has care,
Unquietare its graves;
But peaceful sleep is ever there,
Beneath the dark blue waves.
