Beach Song
By Pearl Andelson
From “From a Bay-window”

WHAT are they weaving under the water?
They make sheer laces and drag them down.
They ruffle a lawn with a great grieving.
What are they making—what manner of gown?
What are they weaving, caught here,        5
Caught there, on the thin-washed blue?
Who is to be married or who is to be buried,
Under the water, under the water?
