The Sea

The sea, the only life to last / From start to end to flow
– While all other, recently awoken, / Meek and defenseless will go –
Gives in. surf eternal / The expanse, sure yet subtle
That when all die and of life be drain, / Graceful she’ll remain.

Freely translated from de Zee (1947) –J. Slauerhoff
