I viewed in my presence, my hand on my forehead.
And sighting the liners of mad merchant seamen.
In search of the living or the spices of China.

Lucy walked gently between the damp barrels.
And shut out my eyes with the width of her fingers.
Said she'd guessed the number of bales in the back room.

While the seagulls were screaming Lucy was eating.
Then we hauled up our colours the way the mother had told us.
And together we just watched the sails.

Lucy, I said, in a passage of cotton kegs "Can we hold hands?
I'm sure that it's warmer."
Then the gulls ate the crumbs of Lucy's sandwich.

While the seagulls were screaming Lucy was eating.
Then we hauled up our colours the way the mother had told us.
And together we just watched the sails.
