In their morning,
I have seen the women who are seals
swimming
to shore

A slender trail
through, the wave...
an azure wedding veil

Given limbs
they glide the land,
knowing
no other way to move

From depths I never
knew before

I have seen the women
who are seals

going to marry their fabled loves
