The Ocean Slumbered

The ocean slumbered
Beneath the silent eyes of a sea of stars
Strewn across the vast firmament
The slow lapping of a million waves
Into deep sleep
Did the waters lull
All the fishes of the sea
Had for the night retired
Into myriad secret folds
And entrances cavernous
With the seabed depths concealed
While atop the watery surface
A flotilla of small boats
Moored in the harbour
And myriad fragments of driftwood
That littered the glassy surface
Of the slumbering blue giant
Danced with the swirling seaweed
In the light of a placid moon
