Questions for the Sea

Waves breaking on the rocks in eternal rythmic beat
To what drummer do you dance?
Whales singing in eerie cadences to the ocean deep
Did we hear you just by chance?

Sharks eating unwary fish with frenzied passion
What is your position?
Sea that shelters, pelters on the rocks with dispassion
Do you have a mission?

Smiling dolphin saving ships from savage storms;
Whose countenance our spirit warms,
Deadly urchin, fish of all varities; cod, eel and manatees
Who invented all these forms?

Tidal waters, ocean deeps, full of life that never sleeps
To what drummer do you dance?
Dreamy whale singers of the water melodies
Whose design do you enhance?
