From the base of the wave to the billow's crown;

Up and down! Up and down!
From the base of the wave to the billow's crown;
And amidst the flashing and feathery foam

On the craggy ice, in the frozen air,
And only seeketh her rocky lair
To warm her young and to teach them spring
At once o'er the waves on their stormy wing!
