The Sea at Night

The Sun's crawled down, under the Sea,
And night creatures come into sight,
Creeping out from behind rocks and stones,
Taking time to cool their bones
--Now that harsh heat's turned cold night.

Let's take a swim, jump into the Sea,
With its freckles of reflections of Stars,
Where white waves break the hint of a Moon
Into silvery, satin scars.
Let's go for a swim, so, so far,

'Cause the Sun will come very soon,
And we don't have much time to dive in,
Under a blanket of sad, gloomy night,
Now, while the lighting's still dim,
Now, while the timing's still right.
