lunar glow upon the ocean
a thousand times he casts his net
never has he caught her yet
steadfast his devotion

quicksilver love is wild and senseless
now he casts his body in
never to return again
quicksilver love is endless

the moon it smiles upon the ocean
evermore her smile is set
evermore she’ll cast her net
in vain for such devotion

  1. What a lovely comment – thank you. It’s written in the “In Memoriam” stanza of Tennyson (abba). That’s a poem very dear to my heart so I don’t use it lightly. May tweak it a bit – thanks again.
