Marsh Song—At Sunset

Over the monstrous shambling sea,
      Over the Caliban sea,
Bright Ariel-cloud, thou lingerest:
Oh wait, oh wait, in the warm red West,—
      Thy Prospero I’ll be.

Over the humped and fishy sea,
      Over the Caliban sea
O cloud in the West, like a thought in the heart
Of pardon, loose thy wing, and start,
      And do a grace for me.

Over the huge and huddling sea,
      Over the Caliban sea,
Bring hither my brother Antonio,—Man,—
My injurer: night breaks the ban;
      Brother, I pardon thee.
