Poets Corner: May 1968: Lambert’s Cove


May 1968: Lambert’s Cove
By Leroy Hazelton

The sea is hidden
At the end of worn grey planks,

So life gently rises
In the scent of ocean
As you close your eyes

And drift past original destinations,
Out on the fragile nerve

Where the world is stained glass
