The Wanderer by Edward Dowden

I cast my anchor nowhere (the waves whirled
My anchor from me); East and West are one
To me; against no winds are my sails furled;
—Merely my planet anchors to the Sun.

From: Dowden, Edward, Poems, 1914, J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd: London and Toronto, p. 1.

Date: 1872

By: Edward Dowden (1843-1913)
