The Sea by the Wood

I dwell in the sea that is wild and deep,

I can see the trees that gather and sleep

The deeps aye green as an emerald's face,
The caves are crystal calm,
But I wish the sea were a little trace

Excerpt from New World Lyrics and Ballads

The Sea by the Wood

I dwell in the sea that is wild and deep,
But afar in a shadow still,
I can see the trees that gather and sleep
In the wood upon the hill.

The deeps aye green as an emerald's face,
The caves are crystal calm,
But I wish the sea were a little trace
Of moisture in God's palm.

The waves are weary of hiding pearls,
Are aweary of smothering gold,
They would all be air that sweeps and swirls
In the branches manifold.

They are weary of laving the seaman's eyes
With their passion prayer unsaid,
They are weary of sobs and the sudden sighs
And movements of the dead.

All the sea is haunted with human lips
Ashen and sere and gray,
You can hear the sails of the sunken ships
Stir and shiver and sway,
