Songs Of The Sea

Songs of the sea

Cast an awful sound

Over the watery caskets of men

Felled at the hands of unexplainable sounds

And elastic memories, fading, taunting

Daring to explore the source

The music never stops, the roaring thunder

Calming waves muttering to turbulent floor

Strike up a chord to lead man to perdition

There is only but so much he can see

And even less to do, in spite of his wisdom

Can the blue face ever be understood?

Much less traversed, we have fallen humbly

Boats of one, ships of hundreds

And dreams of millions have been laid to rest

Mermaid memories, we are

Facades kept in grottos

As they hoped for the day when we too

Would learn to be one with the earth again

I'm interested in hearing what you have to say
