This is my own way of joining the "June 8 Blog Action Day to Save our Coral Reefs and Seas". We have been to nearby Kopyat Island where coral reefs abound and we have been to faraway Coron where the beauty of the island and richness of the sea just kept us in awe even until now. As our family marveled at the magnificence of it all, we cannot help but believe in our hearts that we must, in any way we can, help SAVE OUR PHILIPPINE SEAS!
My friend, let us join in this campaign...NOW!!!
Here's a favorite poem from long ago to commemorate this time:
SEA FEVER ~ by John Masefield
I MUST go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a gray mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.
I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way, where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.
