THE FIRST THING YOU LEARN
by Weld Champneys

The first thing you learn: you are alone
searching every tree
every single stone

somewhen you think or dream or see
beyond the beside
of what defines you and what defines we

as the beach learns the tide
and calls it its own
you learn – you learn and abide

the first thing you learn: you are alone
somewhen you think or dream or see
as the beach learns the tide
learns the moon learns the sun
the last thing you learn: we are one

THE ROLL OF WAVES
by Mary Ellen Simpson

Every,
Little waves,
Ebbing,
Big ones,
Crashing,
Into rocks,
Splash!
The roll of waves

Look there!
A surfer,
Surfing,
Atop the wave,
As it rolling,
Toward shore,
Swish!
The roll of waves

Strong wind,
Blows,
Waves rolls,
Wildly,
The stronger,
Wind blows,
The wilder,
Waves rolls,
The roll of waves.
