reading significance

we listened hard and heard as ocean broke
on quiet beaches and the foamy white
fingers of immense force seemed to delight
in what they touched let our tired feet soak
in the warm salty pleasure of each stroke
of that great hand the day was sharp and  bright
and the whole universe seemed ours by right
we laughed and thought we understood the joke
so much of knowledge is how each can feel
a world of magics at the skin's tight end
without a sense of energy or strain
this case is settled on the first appeal
because we find that each can best attend
to matters that are well set out and plain
