“As the languid ocean slumbered” my newest verse #d’Verse #poem #WritingCommunity

As the languid ocean slumbered
It gathered tales of heartfelt dreams
Whispered to it in the night
By the ripples a’million
That homage came to pay
To their mother the sea
The urgency of their pleas
That it would recall upon waking
To honour by bearing
And upon its waters carrying
The supplicants ardent
To the far side of the world
And distant shores impoverished
By the cruelties of the elements delinquent
Awaiting travellers seafaring
Gifts of glass and salt all a’bearing
Their caves and troves
For another year to replenish
