Member of the New Society of Painters in Water Colours. "There, all along that iron shore,/ The thundering wave foamed evermore./ From you vast crag that mocks the spray./ Where tore the Ern her quivering prey,/ Up rose if fierce delight her yell;/ And then, as tho' it were a spell/ To call defiance from the main,/ Her mate as fiercely shrieked again." [P. 19.]
