Invitation - Poem by Luiza De Mesquita

So let us be off to the depths of the sea
to hurry through saltworks
fetch shells and make love
backs to dunes
and dive down the blue there
there to swim until spent Come let us be off to the depths of the sea
and we'll swim until spent
down and down and down and down
wave-heaved and dolphin - hastened
Celebrants of the jungles of the floor of the sea Come let us take off for the depths of the sea
we'll whirl there, we'll chant
till love, love's alone left to do Come let me escort you to the depths of the sea
Extend me your hand
And my dream does the rest
