you've never seen the sea
with the waves chasing in play
or foaming angrily in a gale,
and the infinitely wide horizon
that merges with the sky -
you've never heard the song
sung by the wind and the waves
out of the yearning of the deep
and the ocean's lost realms,
the song of the sea -
be silent! You have never beheld
the sublime countenance of the divinity
nor perceived her travail.
For only longing may approach her.
Yearning and the sea are one!
