Ocean Poems

Poems about Deep Blue Seas

Three quarters of the earth's surface is covered by water. The ocean conceals billions of creatures interacting in ways that we will never fully understand. Much of the ocean is mysterious. We cruise along on boats on the ocean's surface, and sit on beaches watching the ocean's surf meet the land. One of the great things about the ocean is that we cannot build on it. It will remain a vast open space perfect for contemplation.

  1. Promises Of A New Day

    Exploring Life's Possibilities

    The perpetual cadence of the vast sea
    Stirs a restless desire that engulfs me.
    Like an infinite force I dare not impede,
    Briefly rushing in - only to then recede.

  4. Sea Fever

    I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
    And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
    And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
    And a gray mist on the sea's face, and a gray dawn breaking.

  12. Ocean - Mysterious Mistress

    I would be enthralled at the stories the ocean could tell,
    about explorers and adventurers that traversed its swell,
    of the lives lost in shipwrecks and of pirate tales of old,
    and legends passed down through generations, told.
