Treasure Island

James Casey

(11June 1940 / Binghamton, New York)

Sensual Sea


Sensual Sea

I have spent some time over the sensual sea
No longer there still I hear, ' come flow with me '

Leaving a pier at dark sailing into the night
On and on we sail under the magic of moonlight

I feel that in another life I was one with the sea
Meant to be on a tall ship swaying endlessly

Gliding along under sail on a sea that sings
Creaking masts send us forth on our billowy wings

Nothing can compare to sailing neath stars above
Exciting places to be seen while on this sea of love

Someday I shall return and sail again upon this sea
Wouldn't you like to leave this land and sail away with me?

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
