"Island" is the third song of Musto's song cycle Shadow of the Blues.

Island [1]
by Langston Hughes

Wave of sorrow,
Do not drown me now:

I see the island
Still ahead somehow.

I see the island
And its sands are fair:

Wave of sorrow,
Take me there.

--The Collected Poems of Langston Hughes, p. 376
