Lines Composed on the Shores of Xanadu’s Dev Ocean

Off Xanadu is where the ocean playsA song as sweet as nectar on the lips,Though I’m immersed in silence while I pray.

The clouds look down upon the sea and say,”Oh it’s so strange how our perspectives flip,”Yet, Xanadu is where the ocean plays.

The children battle with the tides todayForgetting how to dry off from a dip,Though I’m immersed in silence while I pray.

The waves make men swim in different ways,Hiding the destinations of their trips,For Xanadu is where the ocean plays.

Should I prolong devotion with delay?Or bind myself to Earth with chains and whips?No! I’m immersed in silence as I pray.

The sun warms up the beach with loving raysWhile I feel blissful joy from tip to tip,For Xanadu is where the ocean plays,And I’m immersed in silence as I pray.
