Seaport – a poem by A S J Tessimond

Green sea-tarnished copper
And sea-tarnished gold
Of cupolas.

Sea-runnelled streets
Channelled by salt air
That wears the white stone.

The sunlight-filled cistern
Of a dry-dock. Square shadows.
Sun-slatted smoke above meticulous stooping of cranes.

Water pressed up by ships’ prows
Going, coming.

City dust turned
Back by the sea-wind’s
Wall.

Arthur Seymour John Tessimond

Another beautiful poem by  A S J Tessimond. I love his work – he paints pictures with words. I hope you enjoyed it!
