“God bless this bread
And God preserve
The breadwinner”, I murmur

My Only Sister

I never met my only sister
Never saw her save in dreams.

Or else in filmy robes she lazed

Of any boat or ship afloat
I feel at home and ready to roam
The ocean wide come wind or tide,

she has the right side, I have the left.

Is it the sky, heavy as sin
or is it the wind that seems to whistle
