  1. #1
    “That most ingrateful boy there by your side
    From the rude sea’s enraged and foamy mouth
    Did I redeem; a wrack past hope he was.
    His life I gave him and did thereto add
    My love, without retention or restraint,
    All his in dedication. For his sake
    Did I expose myself, pure for his love,
    Into the danger of this adverse town;”
