‘All Day I Hear The Noise Of Waters’ by James Joyce

‘All Day I Hear The Noise Of Waters’

by James Joyce100_2431

“All day I hear the noise of waters
Making moan,
Sad as the sea-bird is when, going
Forth alone,
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
Far below.
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.
