Sailor cry

  • Cry out loud so all the whales
  • fill their deepest despair wells,
  • cry out soft so every fish
  • trembling forgets any wish,
  • cry out low so every gull
  • shrieks like mad that life is dull,
  • cry out high so all the eels
  • stop and learn just how it feels,
  • breaking hearts and bringing hell,
  • stomping love while trumpets yell,
  • forcing me to flee in fear:
  • I will leave you not, my dear.
