The Sea – Louis MacNeice

The Sea

The Sea

Incorrigible, ruthless,
It rattles the shingly beach of my childhood,
Subtle, the opposite of the earth,
And, unlike earth, capable
Any time at all of proclaiming eternity
Like something or someone to whom
We have to surrender, finding
Through that surrender life.

Louis MacNeice 1907-1963

      • I’m not necessarily ‘kind’ (read polite) but I will give a sincere opinion. I think you have excellent skills (a bit of jealousy on my part but with practice … ) and it shows through the body of work you post.

  2. WOW. Many thanks Allan, if only more people could talk to me like that I may get a little more self belief. Thank you
