Blue waters


Blue water - wave on wave follows me
Wherever I go blue water calls to me.
Blue water - wave on wave follows me
Oh with the salt tears of the sea…

Blue water - why do you, follow me
Your waves there like a shadow
Calling me to swim; far and wide.
Calling me to paraglide…

…Down into a drying, windrow.
To sleep in a twisted tropic mango-
Tree a swamp far out to sea.
Blue water - why do you, follow me.

Wherever I go blue water calls to me.
Blue water - wave on wave follows me
Oh with the salt tears of the sea…
Blue water - wave on wave follows me.

As I look to be saved …
Only blue water follows me
Only blue water promises,
Now to rescue me!

As I drown I see a blue light
That has now the breadth of me
It circles at the centre of the night
There I too join these blue waters that are me.
Blue waters, blue waters, blue water that is, me.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
