[17] But look, thou dreamer! wave and shore
     In shadow lie;
The night-wind warns me back once more
     To where, my native hill-tops o'er,
Bends like an arch of fire the glowing sunset sky.

So then, beach, bluff, and wave, farewell.
     I bear with me
No token stone nor glittering shell,
     But long and oft shall Memory tell
Of this brief thoughtful hour of musing by the Sea.
