Beach (1972)


by Marc Mangel


I long to be on a beach again

touched by a soft breeze

nourished by

sun and white sand


to be at peace

with nature

and all that is good

to forget sound and city



to fly into cool water

and be slightly burned by


but it is not so bad


I long to be on the beach that we loved

without pain or threat

simple as the stars

which smile


September 1972
