Ocean Song


Crashing ever on stony shores
Waves breaking in white foam
Coral tumbling on watery floors
Pictures of treasure in a waterlogged tome

What fire builds up, water wears down
Crashing musically against the sand
Breaking rocks against the ground
Far more beautiful than the rocky land

Gleaming with sun in the day
Glimmering under moonlight at night
Sapphire waters filling the bay
Reflecting gold in the chilly twilight

Beating tirelessly against the stony shore
Beautiful now and forever more

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.
