At Holyhead

By Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)

O NEPTUNE! Neptune! must I still

Be here detained against my will?

Is this your justice when I ’m come

Above two hundred miles from home,

O’er mountains steep, o’er dusty plains,

Half choked with dust, half drowned with rains,

Only your godship to implore

To let me kiss your other shore?

A boon so small! but I may weep

While you ’re, like Baal, fast asleep.
