The Sea, The Sea!

A Three Thoughts Publication


For whatever we lose (like a you or a me) It’s always our self we find in the sea. E.E. Cummings


Godrevy Point By Patrick Wolf Ten miles I’ve walked today Along the shore I saw your ghost again The seasoning and birds gather to go And I laid down at the top of a cliff Confessed my sins into the wind And the sky lay a feather in my mouth Good Lord, it was a beautiful day For untangling, unravelling my heavy heart away To forgive and forget myself and my enemies My bruises washed away Today was the day I first said, “I belong” Here in the ghost region All alone upon the shore This changing line between land and sea Between a cease-fire and a war And down by the foot of the cliff Where I gathered shells and watched the swells Blossom up around my feet I saw the ribcage of some wreck on the rocks What a tragic cost for getting lost When you just can’t find the light through this fog But today was the day I first said, “I belong. I belong” Here in the ghost region All alone upon the shore This changing line between land and sea Between a cease-fire and a war It’s a war It’s some beautiful war


The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore. Vincent van Gogh


The Towans By Patrick Wolf It’s a wild stretch of land Such a sad place to be When the night comes heavy down And the sand turns to sea Many saints have lost their love Many a pilgrim died unseen In that wild stretch of land In that fire to be free


I have an immense appetite for solitude. Henry David Thoreau


Always I Swaggers and I shall I shall sing

shall be one who loves the wilderness softly creeps between the mountain peaks listen long to the sea’s brave music my song above the shriek of desert winds. From “Wilderness Song” by Everett Ruess
