“And When I Die”

~ Blood, Sweat & Tears

“The tide rises, the tide falls,/The twilight darkens, the curlew calls;/Along the sea-sands damp and brown/The traveller hastens toward the town,/And the tide rises, the tide falls./Darkness settles on roofs and walls,/But the sea, the sea in the darkness calls;/The little waves, with their soft, white hands,/Efface the footprints in the sands,/ And the tides rises, the tide falls./The morning breaks; the steeds in their stalls/Stamp and neigh, as the hostler calls;/The day returns, but nevermore/ Returns the traveller to the shore,/And the tide rises, the tide falls.”

                       Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

                      “The Tide Rises, The Tide Falls”
