sailor the maiden and the sea

In solitudes silence upon the waves,
whose bright billows crest and die,
He falters his grasp to repent of despair
of land, of sea, of sky.

For there in his heart is a lovely lass,
the warmth of her kiss still aglow,
and tender sweet moments of blissful repose,
they shared but a moment ago.

Disquieted of soul from the wearisome rest,
in his death mocking hue had lain,
weeping, half broken, and fallen of heart,
afflicted with sorrow and pain.

The sea hath her beauty and powerful charm,
which beckoned his further adieu,
trapped by his torment of choice that he made,
returned to the sea that he knew.
