Late on the beach I heard the sea invite
To swim into its soft embrace once more.
Upon the waves I bounced with such delight
That pebbles danced their way back to the shore.
The ocean swept me atop, upon its crests,
Though I sensed anger deep within its roar.
With such indifference it snubbed my caress
By whirling me wildly, high in the air.
I sank so far beneath its callous-made breast,
As if Neptune approved our love affair.
Eternally past bubbly bliss I rest
At dusk and dawn while gulls fly up there.
I lie in wait upon our throne of jade,
Heart bleeding for swift-shadowed serenade.
