BREAKERS that beat against the shore With pulsing throb and angry roar
And multitudinous meanings evermore,—
Ye are to me as souls untaught of pain, That bent upon a fruitless quest
Still dash themselves 'gainst barrier laws in vain; But, oh, beyond your tumult and unrest,
Is Ocean like the Everlasting Will,—
So vast, so deep, so still!
