Us Apart

Floating off the wave-torn

Wind, a feathery voice

Red with laughter

Tickles my ears,

Hardly felt,

Wholly unheard.

A silver smile lights the seas,

A shade too faint, too far.

Only a vague twinkle touches the eye.

And though a billion

Leagues of churning surf

Stand between,

I know you are more lovely

Than all the crystal water

Keeping us apart.
