Zz 026 Love Is Like A Ship - Poem by Edward Wright Haile
Our love is like a ship set in mid sea,
a groaning square-rig, slack and drooping sail,
that slats and wallows in the glossy swell,
but waits the trade with patient company.
Or submarine dropped to abyssal dark
that bears the clench of salt, black firmament,
that strolls the numbing depths a slumbering shark,
its instincts helpless to its instruments.
Or open smack awash in slanting tempest,
that cowers bailing in the muffled trough,
and leaps the woolly combers sleet-engulfed,
but steady in the roaring emptiness.
True love and marriage amid immensities
are waterproof and breast all seven seas.
