Poem of the Month:
by Sir Charles George Douglas Roberts (1860-1943)
O breath of wind and sea,
Bitter and clear,
Now my faint soul springs free,
Blown clean from fear!
O hard sweet strife, O sting
Of buffeting salt!
Doubt and despair take wing,
Failure, and fault.
I dread not wrath or wrong,--
Smile, and am free;
Strong while the winds are strong,
The rocks, the sea.
Heart of my heart, tho' life
Front us with storm,
Love will outlast the strife,
More pure, more warm.
