Old men with bent fingers

Old men with bent fingers weaving worn nets
Beside capricious seas dream of their boats
Filled with leaping fish as great swells heaving
In boiling waters tumble to the sand.

And dawn breaking the stars, as the last lights
Winking out amid the wild gusts squalling
The heavens and of crested waves falling
To the endless roar of storms and silence.
