Poems about the sea by the poet Sun Shadow.
THE SEA I am a child The first time I dip in the sea, Tug by tug Through ebb and flow, To feel fish fries And lives lived, Just wet feet From me. I am a girl The next time I swim out to sea, Tack and jibe Through surf and foam, To breathe salt sails And strong strokes, A keelboat For me. I am still young The third time I dive in the sea, Drop deep Through dark glass, To see high hues And grey ghouls, To be free And just me. I am not old The fourth time I float in the sea, Bob and soak Through haze and smoke, To taste pink pearls And burnt bass, Neat shot to me. I am so old The last time I stand in the sea, Weak-kneed Through wave and tide, To hear wild winds And rushed rhymes, So new and strange to me.
