There is lots of kelp to be removed from the ocean

Friday poem: The Drop that Wrestles in the Sea

Some passion from Emily Dickinson. In Greek mythology Amphitrite was a sea-goddess, the wife of Poseidon the sea-god.

The Drop that Wrestles in the Sea – Emily Dickinson


The Drop, that wrestles in the Sea —
Forgets her own locality —
As I — toward Thee —

She knows herself an incense small —
Yet small — she sighs — if All — is All —
How larger — be?

The Ocean — smiles — at her Conceit —
But she, forgetting Amphitrite —
Pleads — “Me”?
