“The Sea-Limits”

by Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1869)

Consider the sea’s listless chime:
    Time’s self it is, made audible,–
    The murmur of the earth’s own shell.
Secret continuance sublime
    Is the sea’s end: our sight may pass
    No furlong farther. Since time was,
This sound hath told the lapse of time.

No quiet, which is death’s,–it hath
    The mournfulness of ancient life,
    Enduring always at dull strife.
As the world’s heart of rest and wrath,
    Its painful pulse is in the sands.
    Last utterly, the whole sky stands,
Grey and not known, along its path.

Listen alone beside the sea,
    Listen alone among the woods;
    Those voices of twin solitudes
Shall have one sound alike to thee:
    Hark where the murmurs of thronged men
    Surge and sink back and surge again,–
Still the one voice of wave and tree.

Gather a shell from the strown beach
    And listen at its lips: they sigh
    The same desire and mystery,
The echo of the whole sea’s speech
    And all mankind is thus at heart
    Not anything but what thou art:
And Earth, Sea, Man, are all in each.
