  • Streaming tears, sobbing tears, throes, choked with wild cries; O storm, embodied, rising, careering with swift steps along the beach! O wild and dismal night storm, with windO belching and desperate! O shade so sedate and decorous by day, with calm countenance and regulated pace, But away at night as you fly, none lookingO then the unloosen'd ocean, Of tears!  (not reviewed by editor)
