In The Summer

Rating: 3.3
In the summer
I stretch out on the shore
And think of you
Had I told the sea
What I felt for you,
It would have left its shores,
Its shells,
Its fish,
And followed me.

To picture the ocean leaving its bed and walking behind the love-struck poet, as a poodle would trot behind its master, is a ridiculous image
