The Sea (Ode to Manannan)

From the sea all things flow
Life, Love, and every word
Ever written in every poem
And every song ever heard

Riding on the rolling waves
Lie the dreams of every man
All his hopes for all his days
Washed ashore on silky sand

Sunrise shines on surface glass
Twinkling stars from world beyond
I see the other side at last
Where I shall travel yet, anon

Floating over crystal blue
'neath gleaming white of billowed sails
I shall come one day to you
And we shall drink a great wassail!
