Shoreline after Storm

Unfathomable Sea
whose waves are years,
Ocean of Time,
whose waters of deep woe
Are brackish with the salt of human tears
Thou shoreless flood,
which in thy ebb and flow
Claspest the limits of mortality!.
And sick of prey, yet howling on for more,
Vomitest thy wrecks on its inhospitable shore;
Treacherous in calm, and terrible in storm,
Who shall put forth on thee,
Unfathomable Sea?

Unfathomable Sea – Percy Bysshe Shelley
