I sat on the beach at eventide, I heard the roar of the Sea, The splash of waves on the shore-line Boisterous, wild and free. My thoughts, like the gulls above me, Went soaring to and fro, From things that are here and present To things of long ago. And my soul like the tide was restless; Forever ill at ease, Now like the wind of a tempest, Or softly lulling breeze. But I heard in the roaring surf-beats The echoes of passing years; And I saw in the peaceful harbor, The end of doubts and fears. —E. HARVEY SLAGLE.
