DROWNED IN HARBOUR, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: All sea is still the sea: why vainly blame
Last Line: Know well that seas be seas, as here I lie.
Alternate Author Name(s): Antipatros Of Thessalonika
Subject(s): Drowning


ALL sea is still the sea: why vainly blame
The Needles, Cyclades, or Helle's jaws?
Them I escaped for all their empty fame,
And Scarphe's haven sank me -- for what cause?
Who will, may pray safe passage home; but I
Know well that seas be seas, as here I lie.
