West Coast Scene

West Coast Scene.

I saw the sea lean like a lovely girl, Her cheek against the land's maternal
(Her smooth green cheek against that
golden breast).
And as she lay, her cool white feet
were pressed
Into the gleaming sandals of the sand,
While lupins dripped their honey in
her hair,
And grave gulls chained her whitely
to blue air …
And she slept on, abandoned to her
Like some young lovely girl of languid
Who feels the sun upon her sea-green
The fingers of the wind upon her face.
