Sleek and silent shapes of gray
Deep in dark blue watery haze
Your shadows move with grace and speed
Oh, restless demons of the sea

What fear you strike in the hearts of men
When sailors see your deadly fin
Slicing through the deep blue sea
A sovereign anonymity

Bells have rung and yet shall ring
Choirs have sung and yet shall sing
For sailors who have met their doom
Deep in dark blue watery gloom

    Good poem, but not all shark species are predatory. Most of them swim in the ocean and mind their own business.

    A striking portrayal of the misunderstood shark.
