The Seawater Ballad

The sea

Smiles from far off

Teeth of foam

Lips of sky.

 

What are you selling,

muddy young woman?

With your breasts exposed?

 

Sir, I sell the water Of the seas.

What are you carrying,

dark youth Mixed with your blood?

 

Sir, I carry the water

Of the seas.

These saline tears,

Whence do they come, Mother?

 

Sir, I weap the water Of the seas.

Dear one; and this earnest

Bitterness – of what is it born?

Very bitter is the water Of the seas.

 

The sea

Smiles from far off

Teeth of foam

Lips of sky.
