LANDSMAN'S DREAM, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A strip of earth, a patch of sky
Last Line: And in my heart a sail?


A strip of earth, a patch of sky,
The glory of the sea,
A myrtle thicket on the dune,
A lone palmetto tree;
Beyond the bar a passing sail
That travels silently.

I dwell where blushing maples burn
Beyond the crystal gale;
My only gulls are whip-poor-wills,
A rock my only whale.
Why then are myrtles in my soul,
And in my heart a sail?
