The Old Captain Dream

Night and day night n day now eating his bread and slops
a quiet demented dreaming dreams of sea and soft skies

But how big the seas of thought run still in the captain's sleep
Pacific now ship cabin of sleep rocked to the sea beat in his ears

Over what blue whaled waves does he sail in a rainbow hail of flying-fishes 
he can still see the ocean from his bed where he now lies

Dreaming still of clashing cymbals an eastern sumptuous court
Sultans with voices fiercer than any visiting modern preacher 

Lying he there now till the sky goes out and the sea stops
He hears distinctly insistent over the slow-speaking sea

The voices of time blown up to me
