Fisher Wife’s Prayer

Fisher Wife’s Prayer

Undulating frothing ocean
Moving wrathful with moon motion
Furiously sliding out and in
Shifting on unnatural rhythm

High upon nature’s tides
Her opalescent crescent rides
In her perfect native form
Calmly she rides out each storm

Then ‘neath waxing goddess’ glow
Ceres’ golden seed shall grow
So to you Saint Elmo’s fire
This of you I must inquire
Should you be out upon these waves tonight
Please guide our men to morning light.
