Black Seaside

Outside, the sea was black, as was the night,
All was quiet, just a lonely, fisherman's light,
As unseen waves washed the unseen shore,
So my thoughts grew graver, more and more.


The black, though so peaceful, was tinged with gloom,
A wistful solitude hovered in my room,
And I thought of us till the lamp was gone,
Then waited in silence for the light at dawn.
