 “Sailors and the Sea”(by Joe DiMino)

And if I go, I go alone
For, surely, I would not take
That which I love—

A single blossom,
Chip a starry night,
Dim that silver curl
Of cove, treasure of harbor lights:
My cherished village
With dear kinship, who, despite
My wandering lusts
Always reserved
A welcome home—

Would not take from youth
That same pearl of challenge—
Gem of courage—left me as
Inspiration by noble predecessors
Also daring the sea
Daring the wind
A blustery god—

If heaven and earth not
Somehow one,
Then heaven no place
For spirits
With unquenchable
