The Giant (giclée)
This poem was thought to be the inspiration for N C. Wyeth's "The Giant".When I was just a little boyI played beside the ocean;I saw it swell; I felt its spell,Its mystery of motion.Upon the shore I heard it roar,It sobbing song, and muttered;With joyous fear I used to hearThe strange wild words it uttered.Then, too, its blue and frothing whiteI thought hid caves of cool delight;But turbid, angry, swirling greenHid monsters horrid things unseen.I'm older than that little boy,I know far more than heAbout the name, the spread, the fameOf that great sounding sea.But oh, I know its greatest joy,Its awe, and subtle potion;Are not for me, but for the boy,The playmate of the ocean.
