Dipping gently into the sea

I see it from my pier

Flittering white as sails on ships

The clouds do rush to throw their siege

Upon the earth's humble leave

~x~

Rains dash heavy around the deep

Oceans fill with breaking tears

I watch quietly from my pier

Earth eating away at the sea

That hangs atop the world out of reach

Upon the earth's humble leave

~x~

Reaching out to touch its creed

It tells to me of our deeds

This earth I feel, falls away from me

And desperately as I plead

To be born again of the sea

...it whispers into my ear

When the people are to see,

the world's crumbling fears

Upon the earth's humble leave

~x~

In the earth's final kingdom

I reach out for its freedom
