Sea Lessons

   All night the sea with its broken heart lamented its love
   O happy were days kissing the rivers'saltless tongue in praise
   Of raindrops on their naked skin together trembling.

   My heart is pounding like the surf on distant bars tonight
   for callous flesh like stones will not melt before morning comes for love
   and make us agree that silence is calmer sea to clearly see

   The beauty of the reef submerged in every heart draws breath
    From stifled air that latent sleep in troubled or tranquil breasts
    In the mixing of two waters like our souls the corals bloom afresh
