the sea’s return to the ancient lands

The words of Robert Frost surely stir something in my Yankee soul.

Oh, never this whelming east wind swells
But it seems like the sea’s return
To the ancient lands where it left the shells
Before the age of the fern;
And it seems like the time when after doubt
Our love came back amain.
Oh, come forth into the storm and rout
And be my love in the rain.
Robert Frost, from A Line-Storm Song
