On the Shore ~ Philip Brent Harris
I see the sea going on forever
Obsessively pawing the shore.
Know it, of course is Luna-sea
Despite how near or how far.
We respond because we must;
To refuse beyond our powers.
We will linger until we’re dust
Over the space of a few hours
Will we see space and time one?
We see but their separate faces.
Will we know ere we are gone,
Wait till we are in other places?
As trees wonder on the clifftop;
They’ll stand till they’re fallen.
Their seeds grow, cannot stop.
They all hear the future calling.
We wish we might go farther in;
Our love lost its magic in youth.
Our lack, ignorance are our sin,
Stand on shore to ponder truth.
