1Thin ridges of land unploughed
2Along the tree-rows
3Covered with long cream grasses
4Wind-torn.
5Brown sand between them,
6Blue boughs above.
. . . .
7Row and row of waves ever
8In the breaking;
9Ever in arching and convulsed
10Imminence;
11Roll of muddy sea between;
12Low clouds down-pressing
13And pallid and streaming rain.
