Ships from Warehouse


Since the dawn of language, poets have celebrated the majestic immensity of Earth's oceans, the powerful waters that create and destroy, the intense drama and soothing gentleness of waves, the dangerous voyages to distant shores, and the indelible sensory memories set on shifting sandy beaches drenched in sunshine.

This collection joins the verse of renowned poets with the voices of select modern writers, all inspired by the ceaseless splendor of the sea.

Includes a reading guide for teachers and book groups, and biographies of the poets inside.
