The Salt Sea-wind

When Venus, mother and maker of blisses,
Rose out of the billows, large-limbed, and fair,
She stood on the sands and blew sweet kisses
To the salt sea-wind as she dried her hair.

And the salt sea-wind was the first to caress her
To praise her beauty and call her sweet,
The first of the whole wide world to possess her,
She, that creature of light and heat.

Though the sea is old with its sorrows and angers,
And the world has forgotten why love was born,
Yet the salt sea-wind is full of the languors
That Venus taught on her natal morn.

And now whoever dwells there by the ocean,
And feels the wind on his hair and face,
Is stirred by a subtle and keen emotion,
The lingering spell of that first embrace.




(The end)

Life's Opera
Like an opera-house is the world, I ween,Where the passionate lover of music is seen In the balcony near the roof:While the very best seat in the first stage-boxIs filled by the person who laughs and talks Through the harmony's warp and woof.(The end)Ella Wheeler Wilcox's poem: Life's Opera
