Return Old Man

Poem By Jayl Morris

Oh dusty and weary old man you be,
Return old man, return to the sea.

I've miles to go to keep my vows,
I can not return to the sea just now.

Return old man, return to me,
For I am your love, I am the sea.

My cross I bear and faith is true,
I can not return to sea nor you.

Return old man, return to we,
Return to your post upon the sea.

The forests are deeper than a single tree,
They I will wander while you whisper to me.

Return old man I pray once more,
Return to the sea beyond the shore.

I've a mine to work for it's silver and gold,
To the sea I'll return with the treasure to hold.

Come swiftly old man, return to the sea,
The waves are churning; roiling for thee.

Fifty acres I've set with the Summer's seed,
To the harvest I must lest they turn to weeds.

Return to the sea for lonely are we,
Return old man to your home on the sea.

I still search for the one promised me,
Find her I will before I return to the sea.

Foolish old man, return to the sea,
For we are the ones promised to thee.
