‘Thalatta, Thalatta’
(The Sea! The Sea!)


Waves roll in at my window.
The sun sets:
The sea is my mirror:
My face is the ocean.
Twilight descends:
Great gulls are swooping.
The storm is brewing:

Turn, Tide, Turn

The storm is abating:
Small terns are soaring.
Daylight approaches:
The ocean is my face.
My mirror is the sea:
The dawn breaks:
Waves roll out from my window.
