where nothing at all needs saying,
everything is absorbed through weather and the sea,

and everything is blue again like morning.''

''To give yourself over to another body
That’s all you want really
But to be owned and consumed by another
To swim inside the skin of your lover
Not have to breathe, not have to think
But you can’t live on love, and salt water’s no drink

Each wave a lamb lead to the slaughter
And like children that she just can’t teach
''I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking,
I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over. ''
