Ships slip into seas flush in horizons
Signal flags bright as eyes wave to children on the sands
Heads tall, hands unwrapped, shoe-less they stand
With needles blunt, and thread shorter than any kite tail
Listening to the water and the way it falls
Through the world; their small, rocky beach

They plunge like tigers into the waves
Slash with swords true at the stormy clouds
Until the hours, like marbles, roll by
And to ribbons of tireless blue their eyes turn
Caressed and kicked by that golden tryst
Of which only the foals who drink
From the waters of the crocodile know

The sun and wind them pillars make, thunder and whales reeds
Till the seas their footsteps and love take, with verity
For those signal flags far away, for memory!
