THE SEA SHELL

Sea Shell, Sea Shell,

Sing me a song, O please!

A song of ships and sailor-men

Of parrots and tropical trees;

Of islands lost in the Spanish Main

Which no man may see again,

Of fishes and corals under the waves,

And sea-horses stabled in great green caves—

Sea Shell, Sea Shell,

Sing me a song, O please.

—AMY LOWELL.
