Three times we parted Breath and I

Three times we parted Breath and I
Three times He would not go
But strove to stir the lifeless Fan
The Waters strove to stay.

Three Times the Billows tossed me up
Then caught me like a Ball
Then made Blue faces in my face
And pushed away a sail

That crawled Leagues off I liked to see
For thinking while I die
How pleasant to behold a Thing
Where Human faces be

The Waves grew sleepy Breath did not
The Winds like Children lulled
Then Sunrise kissed my Chrysalis
And I stood up and lived
