Here you will find the Poem The Wave. (From The German Of Tiedge) of poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
'Whither, thou turbid wave? Whither, with so much haste, As if a thief wert thou?' 'I am the Wave of Life, Stained with my margin's dust; From the struggle and the strife Of the narrow stream I fly To the Sea's immensity, To wash from me the slime Of the muddy banks of Time.'
