stories from the sea

Standard

“There is no song the sea will not put in its mouth.” –Anne Michaels, from “Fontanelles”

The Sea and the Man
Anna Swir
You will not tame this sea
either by humility or rapture.
But you can laugh
in its face.

Laughter
was invented by those
who live briefly
as a burst of laughter.

The eternal sea
will never learn to laugh.
