The lover of child Marjory
Had one white hour of life brim full;
Now the old nurse, the rocking sea,
Hath him to lull.
The daughter of child Marjory
Hath in her veins, to beat and run,
The glad indomitable sea,
The strong white sun.
Bliss Carman, 'A Sea Child' (around 1895)
Paul Gauguin: In the Waves, 1889.
