Coromandal fishers

  1. 1. COROMANDAL FISHERSRise, brothers, rise; the wakening skies pray to the morning light,The wind lies asleep in the arms of the dawnlike a child that has cried all night.Come, let us gather our nets from the shore and set our catamarans free,To capture the leaping wealth of the tide, for we are the kings of the sea!5/11/2012
  2. 2. No longer delay, let us hasten away in thetrack of the sea gulls call,The sea is our mother, the cloud is ourbrother, the waves are our comrades all.What though we toss at the fall of the sunwherethe hand of the sea-god drives?He who holds the storm by the hair, will hidein his breast our lives.5/11/2012
  3. 3. Sweet is the shade of the cocoanut glade, and the scent of the mango grove, And sweet are the sands at the full o the moon with the sound of the voices we love; But sweeter, O brothers, the kiss of the spray and the dance of the wild foams glee; Row, brothers, row to the edge of the verge, where the low sky mates with the sea.5/11/2012
