As the fisher folk
Carried their catch
Across the beach,

A few of the fish,
Clinging hopelessly
To precious life,

Leaped from the nets,
And fell onto the sand.

And there,
In burning sun,
And dry, unfriendly air,
They died,

And lay forgotten;

Until the sea rose,
And, with gentle waves,
Caressed them.
