Now that I have
your heart by heart,
I see

The wharves with their
great ships and architraves;
The rigging and the cargo
and the slaves
On a strange beach
under a broken sky.
O not departure,
but a voyage done!

The bales stand on the stone; the anchor weeps
Its red rust downward, and the long vine creeps
Beside the salt herb, in the lengthening sun.

Now that I have
your heart by heart,
I see.
