Summersalt


I went to the beach
On a furious day
Rain & collapsing wind adrift the dunes
The seaspray salted my tongue
As I called your name
But you did not come
Except in a wave
That overpowered my feet
As I fell & wept your name again
Imagine what those seagulls saw
Myself prostrated in a wave of grief
And barely rising to give homage to the gregarious sea

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
