Subject(s): Sandpipers


Waves weave in mystery around our feet,
Swirling in succession on the dim gray strand
From the vast immutable and unillumined sea.
White glimmers suddenly, flowering from gray,
Achieving no more than a dream of white
When all is gray again,

We move in wonder slowly down the strand.

Once more the vision is of white
Lifting itself on wings that beat
Into the unlit air
To drift beyond like petals down a wind --
And a cloud of slender birds descends,
Blending anew with the dim gray strand
While fringed waves flood up and down the beach.
