C Richard Miles


Deep Water Epithalamium

Idling, in the un-plumbed depths,
The gargantuan leviathan slumbers,
Every silver-finned dweller of the deep
Thrills, in uncountable numbers,
In restless, breathless anticipation
For the proximate, long-told approaching
That is the festive, nuptial union
Of the King and Queen of the Ocean.

[Hata Bildir]
