Wonderful poem! I loved the imagery in this, how you described everything in some detail. It makes for a very beautiful poem when you describe the background of the whole thing.
Yet, it's kind of sad also, because instead of being out "there" "you" are sitting at the still instead, unable to reach what you see. I have no idea what I'm talking about, forgive me...
Like I said though, wonderful poem, I really enjoyed this one
"I pray thee, O God, that I
may be beautiful within."
