Poem: Watching the Water

First draft of a poem, I think.   It needs one more stanza, I think. House is too noisy to finish it right now. Poem's about a selkie wife.

She stood there in the morning,
she stood there near the sea,
watching as the waves washed in,
one and two and three,
and remembered a different life,
that seemed so wild and free,
and thought about the life she lived
and how it came to be,
watching as the waves came in,
one and two and three.

She remembered the feel of sunlight
while she was in the sea,
how the waves washed over her back,
one and two and three,
and the secret magic places,
so full of mystery,
and the secret songs she used to sing,
while she was wild and free,
but now she watches the waves roll in,
one and two and three.

Even now she feels it calling,
the deep and restless sea,
but she thinks about her children,
one, and two, and three,
and their eyes so like their father’s
untouched by mystery,
a good man who truly loves her –
Love holds her here to be
watching as the waves roll in,
one and two and three.
