My Friend The Sea: Rod McKuen

Do you know my friend
the sea
he watches everything we do
you, rolling over
in your beach bank sleep
me, chasing seagulls
down the dunes;
You, your skirts held high
wading in the water.

The lovers.
Those who go alone.
He sees them all.

If we’ve ourselves to know
we should get to know the sea.

Rod McKuen

– from the album “The Sea”, 1967
