Beneath the Swells

Written by: Tammy Armstrong

In the waves,
white horses run --
And gallop right up to the beach;
To rear back at sight of sand,
Then tuck themselves beneath the swells
And trot along the ocean floor;
To race up to the shore again --
Beneath their hooves the thunder rolls,
As sea mist bellows from their nostrils,
			       In gasping breaths.
