In The Sea Caves

Rating: 4.3

In the sea caves
there's a thirst there's a love
there's an ecstasy
all hard like shells
you can hold them in your palm.

In the sea caves
for whole days I gazed into your eyes
and I didn't know you nor did you know me.

Untitled poem drawn from the Book of Exercises. All translations by Edmund Keeley and Philip Sherrard
