S E A S C A P E
I recall a distant mirage of the deep,
Before your time, before you appeared--
A water-fairy in the mists of the seas,
Or maybe a pixie, fluttering in the breeze.
Yearning for something as yet undefined,
I nurtured a desire long before your birth,
I yearned for something that did not exist,
Since you, till then, were yet to be seen
Then, now formed, you came on the scene.
I have gazed on many a model of yours,
Always by the sea, unclad and clean,
Like a foam-cleansed, luminous agate
You finally arrived and set foot on earth,
Achieving perfection -- unblemished purity.
Then I understood what was on my mind,
That unknown desire, that yearning to find
