Rocks of the sea

All night and rest of day,
Sea rocks met nothing like sleep.
As usual suffering from wet and cold-
Bowing to the bitter blows defeatedly.
The sand stood firm under their feet,
They have nowhere else and be.
All night all day lambast and grief,
The sunrise as usual was bonding with baskers;
As it came to fiddle and set away.

[Hata Bildir]
