When you have swam…

“When you have swam in the sea
a lake will no longer do;
everyone else has been a pond
but the ocean was always you.”

I have seen them…

“I have seen them riding seaward on the waves 
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back 
When the wind blows the water white and black. 

We have lingered in the chambers of the sea 
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown 
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.” 
— T.S. Eliot
