I’d love to get to know the sea,
And watch her waves rush up the beach,
And chase the gulls among the rocks,
As far as her frothy fingers reach.
I’d love to stretch out in the sun,
And be a part of the hot white sands,
And feel the oceans currents run through me,
And hold their awesome power in my hands.
I’d love to have the ocean take me in,
And recall that she was mother to all men;
That she might know the doubts that I feel now,
And she and God might take me back again.
