The sea-rocks bob like blackened corks
   Beside indifferent shores;
The water buoys and twists and torques
   The granite commodores.

As seagulls skim the curling wave
   They urge the rocks to swim;
The sky maintains they must be brave,
   Their plight however grim.

The mincing stormy petrels shod
   In water-walking shoes
Regard the laundry line of God
   And sails of far canoes.

A Portuguese sunbather lies
   Amid the kelp and foam
And light as bubbles thoughts arise
   Of trees and hills and home.
