The Tide Rises, The Tide Falls

By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


                                          The tide rises, the tide falls,

                                          The twilight darkens, the curfew calls;

                                          Along the sea-sands damp and brown

                                          The traveller hastens toward the town,

                                                 And the tide rises, the tide falls.


                                          Darkness settles on roofs and walls,

                                          But the sea, the sea in the darkness calls;

                                          The little waves, with their soft, white hands,

                                          Efface the footprints in the sand,

                                               And the tide rises, the tide falls.


                                         The morning breaks; the steeds in their stalls

                              Stamp and neigh, as the hostler calls;

                    The day returns, but nevermore

                       Returns the traveller to the shore,

                            And the tide rises, the tide falls.
