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.

    • Published: November 2014

    The waves trickle along my toes.
    The soft ocean sprays across my nose.
    The sand was compliant under my feet,
    Exactly where the ocean and it decide to meet.

  4. Sea Fever

    Sea Fever By John Masefield

    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.

    You look out into the water;
    The waves make the most beautiful sound.
    A place you find peace and comfort,
    Walking hand in hand and looking around.
