Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was asked to produce a work with shades of tastefully erotic content, avoiding anything crude or harsh.

I used quatrain stanzas (verses of 4 lines) with an ABCB rhyming scheme (lines 2 and 4 of each verse rhyme) .

The poem takes it rhythm from the ocean (even the title) . There are numerous maritime references such as tides, ebb and curl. In addition, the poem uses senses – sight, touch, taste, smell and sensation.

    You certainly did what you was asked, very tastefully done,
