‘All Day I Hear The Noise Of Waters’
by James Joyce
“All day I hear the noise of waters
Sad as the sea-bird is when, going
He hears the winds cry to the water’s
The grey winds, the cold winds are blowing
Where I go.
I hear the noise of many waters
All day, all night, I hear them flowing
To and fro.”
James Joyce was born on this day in 1882. You can read more of his work through Surrey Libraries.
