Sea Sense

The sea and its sense
Of cleanliness-
Maidless it sweeps
Its doorstep.

The sea and its sense
Of seasoning
Fridgeless it preserves
With the salt of its kitchen.

The sea and its sense
Of songs-
Cordless it sings
In a lipless language.

The sea and its sense
Of democracy-
Thumbless it vouches
For what belongs therein.

So sweep and never tier,
Hold and never molder,
Sing and never wing,
Long for what belongs!
