Sea Sand Quadrille

Found in ‘We lying by seasand’ by Dylan Thomas

Lying in a yellow grave

of yellow sand

and grave sea,

silent tide lapping

hollow yellow

alcove of words

between water storm

and desert, we wish

for wind to blow away

our ills, cure them

with golden weather

and a one-coloured

yellow cicada calm.
