SEA NEARNESS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Let me lie in an unremembered place
Last Line: The sound of wheeling gulls and waves at play.
Subject(s): Sea; Ocean


Let me lie in an unremembered place
With sorrel red about me and currants swaying,
Let the cool darkness fall upon my face --
I only want to hear waves playing.

I only ask this thing, sound of the sea,
Clean water shifting under a granite ledge,
Spindrift flying wildly by a tree,
The sound of wind among the sedge.

Life must go on, tomorrow and tomorrow,
Night following night and day following day;
Give me the one thing, Life, that I desire --
The sound of wheeling gulls and waves at play.
