remembered shores

what frigate bird and pelican can see
far over water they have yet to tell
so we must put up with that oily smell
and other facts that do not well agree
with ease and comfort still by this warm sea
it is so simple to ignore the yell
just keep the eye on that hypnotic swell
thinking that it is right to let things be
in other places the cold presses hard
on other faces and the nights so long
while city noise forces folk to the bars
then there is longing for the warmth of yard
brightness of seas the comfortable song
and in the night the many lovely stars
