Excerpt from The Padre's Dream: And Other Poems

Slow, creeping mists of night arise, ' And glinting stars creep through the haze: A Padre shades his eager eyes And seaward turns with wistful gaze; While homing birds droop low of wing, And waves the wandering curlew toss, O'er rocks where tangled seaweeds cling, He notes the fateful albatros.

And down the shadowy aisle of years T o woo with retrospective thoughts, A craft of strange device appears Bearing the pilgrim Argonauts. Dimly, yet clear of vision, far, He sees these spectral shadows pass; Pass and repass, with sail and spar Beyond the walls of Alcatras.
