Water Sings Blue: Ocean Poems

Poems and the ocean fit together like wind and sand.

Perfect for summer, Water Sings Blue inspects all the crevices of the ocean’s shore to its depths. Praises for the blue whale: rolling your belly like a tide, and the coral: We are busy. We are growing. We don’t care where you are going, segue into “Ocean Realty”: My name’s Frank Hermit. Here–take my card. So you want a house with a porch and a yard?

Kate Coombs and Meilo So have created a treasury of poems and pictures about the ocean which will stand in nicely when you can’t get to the shore but want a breath of salt air.
