„But go not "back to the sediment"
In the slime of the moaning sea,
For a better world belongs to you,
And a better friend to me.“

And Thou Too (1888)
Contexto: Ay, gather your petals and take them back
To the dead heart under the dew;
And crown it again with the red love bloom,
For the dead are always true. But go not "back to the sediment"
In the slime of the moaning sea,
For a better world belongs to you,
And a better friend to me.
