The bridges mingle with the river,
And the river with the ocean;
The lights of Boston mix forever
With a jagged motion;
Not a lamp-post near looks single;
All things, when in town I dine,
With weird, uncanny phantoms mingle,

If home he'd help a brother.

Or moonbeams that I see?
What are all my struggles worth,
Since I've lost my key?

College Verse (1897)
