The Wreckage by Dora Sigerson Shorter

Love lit a beacon in thine eyes,
And I out in the storm,
And lo! the night had taken wings;
I dream me safe and warm.

Love lit a beacon in thine eyes,
A wreckers’ light for me;
My heart is broken on the rocks;
I perish in the sea.

From: Sigerson, Dora (Mrs Clement Shorter), The Fairy Changeling and Other Poems, 1897, John Lane, The Bodley Head: London and New York, p. 52.
