Eugene Field

(2 September 1850 - 4 November 1895 / St Louis / Missouri / United States)

A Fickle Woman


Her nature is the sea's, that smiles to-night
A radiant maiden in the moon's soft light;
The unsuspecting seaman sets his sails,
Forgetful of the fury of her gales;
To-morrow, mad with storms, the ocean roars,
And o'er his hapless wreck the flood she pours!

And end that I have now begun;
For when this song is sung and past,
My lute be still, for I have done.
