Color Of Night On The Indian Ocean
Tune: Sand-Sifting Waves Song
Color of Night on the Indian Ocean
By William He
Rising within depths of being,
Folding wind and swell.
Under a star burning sky,
Soma hides behind color of night,
The illuminating and visionary beam.
Artemis' Chariot casts its luminescent rays on.
In the salt chuckle of rocks,
All mortal beings only a drop.
As the riddle of the Sphinx,
Aldabra which the waves draw back,
A wilderness with shattered mirrors well nigh.
The whale blows.
Ebb and Eddie of tidy current,
Lasureous billows are surging,
Great Classics gone into the watery maze.
It is a melancholy sound of veena,
And the abyssal benthos coming,
Near colonnades of coral reef.
Lemuria is steeped in legend,
Not even a Cape-comarin breath in the dark.
On the glistening surface,
A myth of creation is painting,
Transience and brilliant vibrance now.
In the strangest isle lively,
The Crown starts to indulge himself,
Listening to the tune of bells of pearl.
Whispering the Dodo in the morning,
He portages across Selene at night,
Leaving merman rolling in the deep.
