The sea was wide- so blue and cold
I needed to land before- I grew old
Not a pint of anything was still sold
Neither rocks so bright, nor the shining gold.
Birds filled the sky-and fishes, the sea
There was no land- to where I can flee
In the winking waters- I felt its glee
Show me a land where- I can be free
Such a weary travel- To where, I knew not
All was litter- What I'd now got
Oh! Please tell me sea! Is this what I sought?
Such a tiresome battle- But for what was it fought?
The sea was wide-so blue and cold
I needed to land before I grew old
I might never land, may never be bold,
It's now just a life here- With rocks and gold...
