Sea Love -- Charlotte Mew

Guest poem sent in by Tom Lincoln
(Poem #431) Sea Love
 Tide be runnin' the great world over.
 'Twas only last June month I mind that we
 Was thinkin' the toss and call in the breast of the lover
 So everlastin' as the sea.

 Here's the same little fishies that sputter and swim,
 Wi' the moon's old glim on the grey, wet sand:
 An' him no more to me or me to him
 Then the wind goin' over my hand.
-- Charlotte Mew
I first heard the poem when it was read by a visiting lecturer at our high
school about 1947. It kept ringing in my head, but I could never find it or
quote it completely. All I could recall was that it was written by a woman
poet with a name that began with "M". For years I tried all of the usual
suspects, but never found it. Then I tried www.Dogpile.com.... and found
[broken link] http://www.execpc.com/~jon/sealove.html but without an author. Given the
title I went back into Dogpile and found
[broken link] http://www.recmusic.org/lieder/m/mew/sealove.html with the author Charlotte
Mew (1869-1928)...

Given that information with Dogpile again under
[broken link] http://www.sappho.com/poetry/historical/c_mew.html I found a full biography...

At 71 I found a poem that massively impressed me in my youth, when such
ephemeral relationships were common (and much regretted).

Luckily, it is not the story of my life.

Her poems are varied: some of them (such as 'Madeleine in Church') are passionate discussions of faith and the possibility of belief in God; others are proto-modernist in form and atmosphere . Many of her poems are in the form of dramatic monologues, and she often wrote from the point of view of a male persona like "The Farmer's Bride".
