Clouds And Sea - Poem by Mai Venn

I have walked your strand for half a century now,
By sunrise, sunset and with stormy shadows that fill the skies,
Like demons sweeping down in search of wondering souls,
Imps like creatures swaying fishing boats astray;
I look on, helpless and pray for their safe return.
Demon clouds with thunder bolts disband when Neptune commands;
He holds the powerful trident to guide ships to safety,
He informs the raging waves to seize, for now the new day awakes slowly;
In the east the sun arises, white angels appear to the front line
With shapes of peace and tranquillity for the savage night has gone.
The sun shines across the bay as if nothing could disturb the harmony of nature,
But the elements are untrustworthy.
Mother Earth glances at Neptune; he is the Sovereign of the Seven Seas,
She is the Protector of both land and sea. `
Time for their departure, the other world calls to them,
They return to a paradise of mythology and dreams, together, hand in hand, And, as they look back, waves reach the beach like ripples,
Sunbeams stroke the strand.
