The Sea by James Reeves
Transcript of The Sea by James Reeves
-There are always more than two sides to life, the one that we see, and the one that we need to dig deeper about. And when the night wind roars
And the moon rocks in the stormy cloud,
He bounds to his feet and snuffs and sniffs,
Shaking his wet sides over the cliffs,
And howls and hollows long and loud.
-Shift right here-
But on quiet days in May or June,
When even the grasses on the dune
Play no more their reedy tune,
With his head between his paws
He lies on the sandy shores,
So quiet, so quiet, he scarcely snores. Theme The Sea Paraphrase:
The sea is like a giant and grey angry dog.
The thrashing waves roll by around the beach all day.
It doesn’t stop its crashing onto the nearby rocks.
It continues to touch the feet of the nearby people.
And when it becomes nighttime,
And the moon comes in,
The tides rise up high.
They stay up all night.
But during the sunmmertime,
When the wind isn’t harsh,
The sea rests from its actions
And stays very quiet By James Reeves

C Licking his greasy paws.
E And when the night wind roars
F And the moon rocks in the stormy cloud,
G He bounds to his feet and snuffs and sniffs,
