by Luis G. Dato
My love is deep, O deeper than the sea
Whose mystery will wash upon your shore,
Its breakers burst on your heart evermore,
Until they rest in you eternally.
My sea in poignant, wandering reverie
Shall see your everglades with boughs grown hoar
And rustic through the yesterdays of yore,
My love is deep, it cannot fathomed be.
Oh I shall reach you where the billows beat
Upon warm rocks and forests green to leap
With shimmering spume and jubilant, swift feet,
The cliffs forbidding sweep, the chasms steep
With surging spray, tumultuous music sweet,
To join your heart symphonious from the deep.
