The Flowers Of The Sea

Posted on Tuesday, August 12, 2008 in Verse

The flowers of the sea are brief
Lost flowers of the sea,
Salt petal, bitter leaf, the fruitless tree.

The flowers of the sea are blown dead
They blossom in death
The sea furrows are down with a cold breath.

I heard in my hear all night
The sea crying
Come home, come home…

I thought of the cold white flowers of the sea.

(c) Walter de La Mere
