Musing on the Roaring Ocean (Robert Burns) Musing on the roaring ocean, Which divides my love and me, Wearying heav'n in warm devotion For his weal where'er he be. Hope and Fear's alternate billow Yielding late to Nature's law, Whisp'ring spirits round my pillow, Talk of him that's far awa. Ye whom sorrow never wounded, Ye who never shed a tear, Care-untroubled, joy-surrounded, Gaudy day to you is dear! Gentle night, do thou befriend me! Downy sleep, the curtain draw! Spirits kind, again attend me, Talk of him that's far awa! tune: Druimoinn dubh (208) ARB
