    Beneath the world of land and sky
    Is another world; a world that I
    Have visited for a time, but could not stay
    As long as I wanted. This world of ray
    And shark, of fish and whale, of wonderful creatures
    Of strange colors, shapes, and features
    Lies beneath the foam and waves of the sea.
    Ancient reefs call to me
    To come and share in their beauty,
    To bathe in their serenity.
    This deep blue world of perfection
    Massages my soul, and relieves the tension
    Of living on the noisy land,
    For here no noise disturbs the sand
    Or coral or walls or caves,
    Nor are they disturbed by waves
    Which crash around the land world's rim.
    This deep blue world remains calm in dim
    Subdued light, filtered and made gentle by the depths.
    I feel a part, but am only a guest
    In this undersea Eden
    From which I must depart for a season,
    Left to remember, and to anticipate the day
    When I may return.
