The Summer Sea / Nathan Haskell Dole

The Summer Sea

After the Japanese manner

Unbroken by a ripple, but yet drifting
  Onward in long wide billows, vast and free,
Upon its bosom ship and shadow lifting,
  Beneath the sunset lies the summer sea.

Nathan Haskell Dole (1852-1935)
from Poetry, August 1915
