Herbert Asquith Sea Poems

  • 1.
    Hooded in angry mist, the sun goes down:
    Steel-gray the clouds roll out across the sea:
    Is this a Kingdom? Then give Death the crown,
    For here no emperor hath won, save He.

    THE sea-breeze beating on her brow,
    The foam asurge her shining feet,
    She stood,-a silver Victory,
    Poised high on some Athenian prow,

    O stem with snow-water agleam,
    And glistening limbs, and trails of pearl.

    HOODED in angry mist, the sun goes down:

    The blue veils of the Spring are out;
    She dances on the sea.

Ernest Dowson Poem
Villanelle Of His Lady's Treasures
 by Ernest Dowson

I took her dainty eyes, as well
As silken tendrils of her hair:
