Poems of Oceans and Beaches

Updated on October 21, 2014

A Poetic Look at the Oceans and Beaches of the World

I love the ocean and I love beaches. They give us plenty of opportunity to enjoy the wonders of nature as well as partake in other outdoor activities. Among many other subjects in the world around me, both beaches and oceans are inspiration for my poetry. So, prepare to embark on a poetic look at the oceans and beaches of the world

Oceans and Beaches and Faraway Reaches

The Wanderlusting Heart Beseeches

Poems in this Hub

I Saw a Shell

To Go Again to the Sea

A Fierce Storm Blew

Look On the Horizon

The Warm Sands are Blowing

I Saw a Shell

I saw a shell beneath the sea

And picked it up to study

A slimy foot poked out at me

T'was not the least bit muddy

I saw a fish beneath the sea

And tried my best to catch it

It swam quickly away from me

Before my hands could snatch it

I saw a ring beneath the sea

That gleamed in the watery rays

I hope its loss to some lady

Haunts her not for all her days

To Go Again to the Sea

Ah, to go again to the sea

On a sailing ship quite fine

And land at many a key

Inhale the air infused brine

To build my sinews strong

Toiling in the relentless sun

Perhaps I've been away too long

I should accept the new life begun

But come I to a sandy beach

Where I can longingly gaze afar

My arm would tenderly reach

To touch a far off rigging spar

A Fierce Storm Blew

Any words were frozen at the mouth

All that one could hear was the gale

And buckets of water upon the sail

Look On the Horizon

Look out on the horizon, there

See that speck at the edge

Some used to whisper a solemn prayer

To not teeter off Earth's ledge

The Warm Sands are Blowing

By this loving palette that Nature provides
