'Abalone'


There is a faraway sea.
Where I have not been.
We have these shelled creatures imported.
The beautiful shell is sold.
The creature is sold.
Then is eaten.
That is the way it was told.
This creature is called abalone.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
