By That Long Scan of Waves.

Part of the cluster FANCIES AT NAVESINK.


By that long scan of waves, myself call'd back, resumed upon  
In every crest some undulating light or shade—some retrospect,   [ begin page 391 ]ppp.00707.399.jpg Joys, travels, studies, silent panoramas—scenes ephemeral, The long past war, the battles, hospital sights, the wounded and  
 the dead,
Myself through every by-gone phase—my idle youth—old age at  
My three-score years of life summ'd up, and more, and past, By any grand ideal tried, intentionless, the whole a nothing, And haply yet some drop within God's scheme's ensemble—some  
 wave, or part of wave,
Like one of yours, ye multitudinous ocean.
