William Ernest Henley

The Sea Is Full Of Wandering Foam

William Ernest Henley was an English poet, critic and editor, best remembered for his 1875 poem "Invictus".






The sea is full of wandering foam,
The sky of driving cloud;
My restless thoughts among them roam . . .
The night is dark and loud.

Where are the hours that came to me
So beautiful and bright?
A wild wind shakes the wilder sea . . .
O, dark and loud's the night!
