Lee-Hamilton, E. (n.d.). Sunken Gold. Retrieved from


Excerpt: IN dim green depths rot ingot-laden ships; // And gold doubloons, that from the drowned hand fell, // Lie nestled in the ocean-flower's bell // With love's old gifts, once kissed by long-drowned lips. // And round some wrought gold cup the sea-grass whips, // And hides lost pearls, near pearls still in their shell, // Where sea-weed forests fill each ocean dell // And seek dim twilight with their restless tips. // So lie the wasted gifts, the long-lost hopes, // Beneath the now hushed surface of myself, // In lonelier depths than where the diver gropes; // They lie deep, deep; but I at times behold // In doubtful glimpses, on some reefy shelf, // The gleam of irrecoverable gold.
