Poetry For Inspiration: The Sea, The Sea

The Sea

Exhultation is the going

Of an inland soul to sea

Past the houses – past the headlands

Into deep Eternity

Bred as we, among the mountains

Can the sailor understand

The divine intoxication

Of the first league out from land?

Emily Dickinson. American (1830 -1886)

The Sea
