(Listen To The Sea) (from Listen Series)


Listen to the sea-
song of surf and tide
of long-dark-luminous things
that glide
and slide into caves
bottom tones-gurgles and moans
sailors unrest in their graves….
On a crest of sea
the setting sun calls-
a huge red head
on a glistening bed:
"Rise ye dead, aft young men
for the moon be ghostly about…
she calls from the deep
a phantom fleet"-
'Come heave and ho!'
risen seafarers shout….
