Life to Be, By the Sea~by Norman Wilson



Life to Be, By the Sea

There is a crude bubbling
Bubbling of blacken tar
Rising from beneath and under
Beyond my sight not that far
In a fortress, barbed
Blackening all that lay before
Off the coastal line
Upon the sandy shore

I wanted hope
I needed much more
To fall before, before
The darkness crept ashore
Bubbling slicks where I live
On the beach
Of an unsuspecting seashore

My hope had diminished
Where the clear clean waves once rolled
Upon a soften blended blond sand
Paving the seaside in heavens gold

Now clothed and lamenting was the sea
Embroiled in brim of blackness
A black mix before all of thee
Rocking across lamented sand
Leaving a new legacy
Fouling the beauty of our coastland
