Description:




The Call Of The Sea



Ever at night I dream of home,
Beneath this starry moon-bright dome,
Edo, Guam or in Tuscany,
Over the star-flecked briny foam
There’s the call of a satin sea.

My heart is marked with a restless scar
Soothed in Greenland or Zanzibar,
And home is where I long to be
Charted under a special star
At the call of a satin sea.

Sometimes I’m close, so near, so near,
The thought of home is all that’s dear,
At the mouth of the River Dee
A Siren song will reach my ear,
It’s the call of a satin sea.

Here am I with my grief in tow
Through gales that batter my ship with snow.
When will it mean an end for me?
When last the storms of heaven blow
Will end the call of a satin sea.

Ever at night I dream of home,
Beneath this starry moon-bright dome,
Edo, Guam or in Tuscany,
Over the star-flecked briny foam
There’s the call of a satin sea.

  I am sad to say no words will ever describe what this work has touched deep inside me.
Perhaps the only way I can do it justice is a favourite.
But ah...even that is not enough...

Cheers

  Wow, I thought this was a really magical poem. I got the image of man looking out to the sea, with a sunset taking place, and a boat sailing away. What I really like was the way the words were arranged and a flowed really nicely together. Also the title, beautiful. Well done. Keep writing.

  This reads like an old sailer spinning a yarn.
I got a image of him leaning over the rail with
a pipe in hand. singing this song as the sun sets. I have read *The Old man and the Sea* and I think your on the right track.

  Marvelous! Is not ever person enchanted and enthralled with the Sea and it's majesty and mystery? "The Call of the Sea"! What an excellent title, dear to the heart of any Sailor! Nicely, done this, by the master himself! Has me riding the waves, looking for calm water!
