Subject(s): Sea; Ocean


Lovers and mockers, both are despicable.
All longing, all despair, and those who hope.
We are diseasèd gods, and miserable,
And yet too often godward do we grope.

The silken bay. The woods' dark fantasies.
Stars hugely blossoming, like vast snow-balls.
The velvet leap of panthers through the trees.
The shore is everywhere. And always the sea calls.—
