A Sea Child

Original Text: 
Bliss Carman, Low Tide on Grand Pré: A Book of Lyrics (New York: C. L. Webster, 1893), p. 55. B-11 7495 Fisher Library.
1The lover of child Marjory
2     Had one white hour of life brim full;
3Now the old nurse, the rocking sea,
4     Hath him to lull.
5The daughter of child Marjory
6     Hath in her veins, to beat and run,
7The glad indomitable sea,
8     The strong white sun.
