"The Face of the Sea, "by Frank Hand fen.

"The spell the sea invokes is universal. It is rooted in our past. The bearer ofprotean moods, benign today, a roil of weltering waters the next, the sea holds our attention. We think we understand it, know it, but there is no knowing it. It is a study in causality, but the causes are infinitely varied and over the horizon; sometimes they are beneath. We are beguiled, charmed, and terrified by it. "Here then is a depiction of deep water, deeply distrubed, the bane of mariners who have looked at its ancient, furrowed visage astir with its colossal grimaces through unknown centuries. ''Ever they rose, those seas, behind some nameless helmsman struggling to keep his vessel, now running too long, too fast, from the staggering trip and halt and rolling broach; a condition not favoring the sailor and his ship.
