Original text and translations
Between the grey monotony of sky
And darker grey monotony of sea,
A solitary seagull passes by,
Beating the air, and screaming plaintively.
And even so between grey yesterdays,
Before your coming waked my dreaming heart,
And darker grey tomorrows, when our ways
Must lie forever half a world apart,
I take my way on wings that feebly beat
Against the adverse winds of circumstance,
My heart, rebellious at this last defeat,
Screaming defiance at the gods of chance.
