INLAND SEAS, by LEXIE DEAN ROBERTSON Poet's Biography
First Line: There is a majesty in fields of wheat
Last Line: The beauty of an ocean night anew.
Subject(s): Fields; Nature; Seashore; Pastures; Meadows; Leas; Beach; Coast; Shore
THERE is a majesty in fields of wheat
That slope away to meet the western sky
Like jade-green oceans where grey sea gulls fly.
There weaves no salty froth where tall waves beat,
Yet in the lace of shadows drifting fleet
Across the glaucous sheen of growing grain
Is meshed the subtle romance of a train
Of white-winged prairie schooners passing by.
And when the moon's pale crescent gold dips low
Above the wheat where vagrant winds blow through,
There comes a moment when I surely know
The beauty of an ocean night anew.
