Here the beautiful sounds of the sea walk beside.
Pebbles mumble and crested waves assert;  echo
Understates the case.  And you, and I, walk beside.
Persuade me, limitless sea.  Give me an identity
To be, someone too lovable to drown
In your green wish and wash, your blonde
Summer utterances, golden yodels, sweet sweeps
Of beach--blue beguiler of my own inviting!

If sea-shanties prime your immortal flood,
May my tears, too, be provident for good.

I want to know just what to do, just who to be
Beyond the cozy monuments of warm mortal love.
Shine my broken glass in your swift foreverings.
