Wooden groynes

The loveliest bed in the world

Groynes in sea

Far away figures on beach

Waves on sand

Swirling wave on sand

But I will live
nowhere except here, by Ocean, trusting
equally in all the blast and welcome
of her sorrowless, salt self.

Waves on beach

Empty beach

Distorted beach

People walking on path

Line of beach huts

Sun shining on waves

Lying smooth and blue, the loveliest bed in the world.

Mary Oliver (Ocean).
