A Day at the Beach

Lunch at a restaurant near the sea, sun drenched and blue,
“I couldn’t take my eyes of you, ” as the song goes. Twice
before the sea had tried to drag me under, but now it was
friendly and I could not resist its pull.
Friends warned, me do not go into the sea, I disregarded
their plea stripped naked and began my descent. Police
came, they spoke softly, had big towels hiding my nudity.
They dressed me like I was a shop window doll, and since
I was seriously sober gave me the car keys, they had my
name and I was warned not to visit this beach anymore.
It was the 17 of May Norway’s day, but they had all gone
home and I was alone singing the national anthem on
Nirvana’s darkening strand

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
