Where The Sea-grass Grows

I am lonely for the ocean
And the seagull's strident cry.
For the foggy morns and evenings
That inflame the western sky.
For the salty winds and breakers
And the ocean's constant roar,
As it rushes in and crashes
On the cliffs along the shore.
I am longing for the beaches
We can walk along and see
All the strange and briny treasures
That are left for you and me.
I can see us there together,
As we were so long ago,
And the waves, our names are calling,
Where the long, sea-grasses grow!
/

You make me want to be there too, Betty Lou.  I love the beach and the water - especially on a foggy, drizzly day.

Wonderfully written poem.

Alison.  Nice to see your comments. Thanks.
I have been away from the ocean far too long and I am hoping to pay a visit before summer is over.

Lovely, this took me back into my longings of the sea and walking endlessly on a winter's beach, letting the wind blow me back into myself.

Extraordinary!

It was just a thought which made them run. It was just an act that killed them.

Those of us close to waters have a deep reverence for their majesty and romantic influence. It stirs emotions within us such as those sweet reminisces found in your poetry.
