?. Fog [sung text not yet checked]

The fog comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

. Sea charm [sung text not yet checked]

The sea's own children
Do not understand.
They know
But that the sea is strong
Like God's hand.
They know
But that sea wind is sweet
Like God's breath,
And that the sea holds
A wide, deep death.
