Glittering & rocking & bursting & blue



The radiant soda of the seashore fashions
Fun, foam and freedom.

The sea laves
The Shaven sand.
And the light sways forward
On self-destroying waves.

The rigor of the weekday is cast aside with shoes,
With business suits and traffic's motion;
The lolling man lies with the passionate sun,
Or is drunken in the ocean.........

.........O glittering and rocking and bursting and blue-
Eternities of sea and sky shadow no pleasure:
Time unheard moves and the heart of man is eaten
Consummately at leisure.
