    --She sang beyond the genius of the sea.<br />
    .....The water never formed to mind or voice,<br />
    .....Like a body wholly body, fluttering<br />
    .....Its empty sleeves; and yet its mimic motion<br />
    .....Made constant cry, caused constantly a cry,<br />
    .....That was not ours although we understood,<br />
    .....Inhuman, of the veritable ocean.<br />
    <br />
    .....The sea was not a mask. No more was she.<br />
    ..The song and water were not medleyed sound<br />
    .....Even if what she sang was what she heard.<br />
    . Since what she sang was uttered word by word.<br />
    .....It may be that in all her phrases stirred<br />
    .....The grinding water and the gasping wind;<br />
    .....But it was she and not the sea we heard.<br />
    ----Stevens---<br />
