The old man returned to the sea
In answer to its memory
What soft haunting whim
Was beckoning him
Why girls clad in swim suits smiled he

Liked it

    A clever poem here Martin! Returning to the sea as an old man who was probably a swimmer or a sea-farer during his youthful years can be very nostalgic!

    Up to the age of 92, my Dad adored Anna Conney on the Lawrence Welk Show. I saw her on T.V. about a month ago and she hasn”t changed hardly at all. My Dad knew beauty when he saw it!
