A Reassuring Silhoutte


Through my mind's eye,
I could clearly see,
The lady and the rock,
In a single silhoutte.

The rock lay undeterred,
Amidst the lashing waves;
And so sat the lady,
In her muse.

I see great resolve,
In both of them;
For, one braves,
The lashing waves;
And another braves,
The human tide!
