Sea and Sky


J. Le Gay Brereton

“WHERE shall we dwell?” say you.
    Wandering winds reply:
“In a temple with roof of blue
    —Under the splendid sky.”

Never a nobler home
    We’ll find though an age we try
Than is arched by the azure dome
    Of the all-enfolding sky.

Here we are wed, and here
    We live under God’s own eye.
“Where shall we dwell,” my dear?
    Under the splendid sky.
