THE

SEA-SIDE BOOK.

"Oh, what an endlesse worke have I in hand,

To count the Sea's abundant progeny !
Whose fruitfulle seede farre passeth those in land,

And also those which wonne in the azure sky.

For much more eath to tell the starres on hy,
Albe they endless seem in estimation,

Then to recount the Sea's posterity :
So fertile be the flouds in generation,
So huge their numbers, and so numberless their nation."
