    When I was just a little boy
    I 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 hear
    The strange wild words it uttered.
    Then, too, its blue and frothing white
    I thought hid caves of cool delight;
    But turbid, angry, swirling green
    Hid monsters horrid things unseen.
    I'm older than that little boy,
    I know far more than he
    About the name, the spread, the fame
    Of 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.
