The ocean is a sweep of current
in lazy swirls at high tide
magnificent with salty spray
roiling by wharf's edge.
Dory boats prepared for mackerel
cod and other finny-species
awaiting young men on a quest
at four in the morning
a catch of plenty exciting
pride in their fishing heritage
the warmth of sun at dawn
embracing sky & water
and straddling an Atlantic shore.
