The Sea, The Sea

The sea, the sea beckons me
with its sirens call.
The lure of its wandering waves,
get a boat and sail with me.

The sea, the sea beckons me
to sail away from home,
to leave all that I love
and with her find a new home.

The sea, the sea with its restless ways
keeps calling out my name.
Saying that sailing with her
will give me fortune and fame.

I am not a sailor
and have no wish to roam.
Sea, oh sea call someone else
and let them answer your call.

    a beautiful poem by a fine author. I may be a sailor, but the sea does not call to me, perhaps i shall rest from the sea, and hope it calls. (Report) Reply

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
