    Siduri, the veiled barmaid, keeps a tavern by the edge of the sea. Gazing along the shore, she sees a man coming toward her. He is wearing animal skins, and his face is wind-bitten and battered. He looks like he has been traveling for a long time. Concerned that he might be dangerous, Siduri closes and bars her door against him.   Discover releases, reviews, credits, songs, and more about The Bothy Band - Out Of The Wind Into The Sun at Discogs.

      THE WIND AND THE SEA I stood by the shore at the death of day, As the sun sank flaming red; And the face of the waters that spread away Was as gray as the face of the dead. And I heard the cry of the wanton sea And the moan of the wailing wind; For love's sweet pain in his heart had he, But the gray old sea had sinned. The Moon, The Sun, The Sea, The Rain, And The Wind poem by Not Long Left. The moon still shines like that of ages old holding distant secrets like a tale yet to be told The sun in all its blinding beauty continues to lend us. Page.

      the Wind and the Sun were having an argument about who was stronger. "I've uprooted huge trees and drowned millions of ships. You can't do either of those things," said the Wind . The Sea Wind by Sara Teasdale. I am a pool in a peaceful place, I greet the great sky face to face, I know the stars and the stately moon And the wind that runs with rippling shoon But why does it always bring to me The far-off, beautiful sound of the sea?
