The hand-coloured illustration is centered above the text, in a circular black frame. In it, a ship sails on a green sea. The ship and its billowing sails are coloured a pale yellow. Behind the ship, enormous white clouds are set against a blue sky. At the bottom of the image is the number “IX.” The artist’s monogram is at the bottom left of the frame.

THE RIM OF THE SEA.

Over the rim of the sea,
Where the sailor sun has set.
Over the rim of the sea,
Where the fisher casts his net.

Over the rim of the sea
The white bird’s mournful cry
Over the rim of the sea
The blue waves roll and sigh.
