Amy Lowell - Sea Shell

Sea Shell, Sea Shell,
Sing me a song, O Please!
A song of ships, and sailor men,
And parrots, and tropical trees,
Of islands lost in the Spanish Main
Which no man ever may find again,
Of fishes and corals under the waves,
And seahorses stabled in great green caves.
Sea Shell, Sea Shell,
Sing of the things you know so well.

I think this poem is really well written. Also, to me, it seems like she's talking about the mysteries that sea shells hold, when you listen to them, they ring//sing, whichever you prefer. All the mysteries the ocean holds, and the sea shells telling them. No one will truly understand what the ocean holds, especially with the past. We don't live there, but the sea shells know.

This poem is great in his form and his content.It is obvious and simple and reminds to everyone his childhood when one could listen to sea shells and hear the words of the ocean...I adore it.
