Listen to the sea sing

Listen to the sea sing

A Poem by Amy Tao
"

A poem threaded with melancholy.

"

Listen to the sea sing

 

On those breezy full-moon nights

When men dream in deep slumber,

And the world dark save streetlights,

Listen to the sea sing . . . 

 

A lament of the blue sea

A song full of loneliness

Of the young woman- the sea

Listen to the sea sing

 

The sea was once not the sea,

But a lovely young maiden,

 Once happy and carefree

Listen to the sea sing

 

She sings of company,

She sings of joy and freedom

Yearning for accompany

Listen to the sea sing

 

Daily the sea watches us,

Watches us play at the beach,

Her lonely days are endless

Listen to the sea sing

 

Taste the salt in the sea spray,

Her salty tears of sadness,

See her face mournful and gray,

Listen to the sea sing

 

Breathe in her salty fresh scent

Feel her silky soft dark hair

Hear her heart-felt sad lament

Listen to the sea sing

 

Her voice low and musical,

As she recalls the old days,

And the wind joins the vocal

Listen to the sea sing

 

Notes pure as honey and sharp

The whisper of the water

Is the music of her harp

Listen to the sea sing

 

Her friends the stars and the moon,

Comfort her and dry her tears,

And sing with her to the tune

Listen to the sea sing          

 

Her heart’s deepest desire

Is to be joyful and free

Escape the sea sapphire

Listen to the sea sing

 

On those breezy full-moon nights

When men dream in deep slumber,

And the world dark save streetlights,

Listen to the sea sing . . .
