Had I here depths that elsewhere thrive,
Swiftly I'd into your blissful fathoms dive;
And bid old pangs on the loveless shore
Eternal bye as I toe and hair slink below.
Breathlessly I'd raptured sink down till
Heart and mind grow all mute and still;
And yet explore your depths' fairer find
By dainty dints of amorous ions twined.
I'd not satisfied yield to early pleasures
That delude shallower ocean creatures;
Deeper yet would my rapt cruising go,
Farther byeing old pangs of the shore.
If transient blisses be earlier found
In my fishy drifts downward bound,
Savor them I may but further glide
Beyond easy pies Romeos deride.
At last methinks I should espy
Your ocean's bed before I die;
And even if not I must for now
Sink yet for deeper feel below.
