The Waves (A poem of sadness)


The waves they sing the song I knew
The song I knew both well and true

The song I sang both day and night
Into the dimming of the light

The song I heard the ravens cry
The song that made the flowers die

The song that all creation rang
The song that all the people sang

The song that I once thought I knew
The waves they sing it well anew
