The Marshes of Glynn

Sidney Lanier made several visits to Brunswick where he was inspired to write several marsh poems, including Sunrise and Marshes of Glynn. The final stanza of the latter goes as follows:

“And now from the Vast of the Lord will the waters of sleep
Roll in on the souls of men,
But who will reveal to our waking ken
The forms that swim and the shapes that creep
Under the waters of sleep?
And I would I could know what swimmeth below when the tide comes in
On the length and the breath of the marvelous marshes of Glynn.”
