Two swimmers wrestled on the spar

Two swimmers wrestled on the spar

Two swimmers wrestled on the spar
Until the morning sun
When One turned smiling to the land
Oh God! the Other One!

The stray ships passing
Spied a face
Upon the waters borne
With eyes in death still begging raised
And hands beseeching thrown!
