Gazing at the Sea

by Lynette Rose Derbyshire


•  Background

A poem by Mrs. Derbyshire.

At the poet's request I have used the modern simplified characters (简体字) for her poems, instead of the traditional ones (繁體字) used elsewhere in these readings.

My translation:

    Gazing at the Sea

I tread the sea's edge, peering out afar.
Sea and sky merge in limitless space.
Seagulls dive for fish like kids playing in pools.
Clouds hang in the azure height, fine as lace.
