Variations on a Line by Peter Redgrove deep pockets hacked from rock
under slate black weather in slate black Wales.

telling tales, telling tales...

Which all the time was going by, right there, outside my cabin window.

And the sides of the ship were green as money,
And th and the water made a sound like memory when we sailed.

but they do it regardless...
