Love At Sea

Rating: 3.8
Wind smothers the snarling of the great ships,
And the serene gulls are stronger than turbines;
Mile upon mile the hiss of a stumbling wave breaks unbroken—
Yet stronger is the power of your lips for my lips.

This cool green liquid death shall toss us living
Higher than high heaven and deeper than sighs—
But O the abrupt, stiff, sloping, resistless foam
Shall not forbid our taking and our giving!
Life wrenched from its roots-What wretchedness!

I cried upon God last night, and God was not where I cried; .................much..............much....................much! Art is there, where laboring for art is less (sometimes it's truth, perhaps) ! .............. Excellent.
