Excerpt from On the Seaboard: And Other Poems The sound of seas! Draw closer round the hearth, Hope that your oaks face bravely to the storm, Let the wild music blend with household mirth, As fair false fancies ‘mid your dreaming’s form. The sound of seas! What does it say to us, When the surf ‘calls’ along the hollow strand, With its deep thunder, low and ominous?

Susan Katherine Phillips (1831–1897) was an English poet. She was born in 1831 in Aldborough, where her father, the Rev. George Kelly Holdsworth, was the vicar of the parish
