The Crying of Water
by Arthur Symons


O Water, voice of my heart,
Crying in the sand,
All night long crying
with mournful cry.
As I lie and listen,
and cannot understand
The voice of my heart in my side,
or the voice of the sea.
O water, water,
crying for rest,
Is it I? is it I?
All night long
The water is crying to me.
