“… Then we sat on the sand for some time and observed

How the oceans that cover the world were perturbed

By the tides from the orbiting moon overhead

'How relaxing the sound of the waves is,' you said.

I began to expound upon tidal effects

When you asked me to stop, looking somewhat perplexed.

So I did not explain why the sunset turns red

And we watched the occurrence, in silence, instead.”
