The wind is crying in the night,
Like a lost child;
The waves break wonderful and white
The drenched sea-poppies swoon along
The drenched sea-wall,
And there's an end of summer and of song -
An end of all.
The fingers of the tortured boughs
Gripped by the blast
Clutch at the windows of your house
And the lost child of love, despair,
Cries in the night,
Remembering how once those windows were
Open and bright.
