First Line: Not you whose throat no more
Last Line: To water and stone.
Subject(s): Sea; Ocean

Not you whose throat no more
May cool as water cools
These hands that would implore,
These fingers that were fools --
But the sea's polished shock,
Sea roar on rock.

Eyes dart and moods conflict,
And other throats are white
Sweet wine: no interdict
Seals long the roving sight --
But a wave's towering intake
Before the break.

The censers overturned,
The smoke spilled in the sand,
The hand that groped -- and burned
Touching your hand --
Not that! . . . . But the small noise known
To water and stone.
