Palma de Mallorca and Robert Graves (sw*itch)

The Beach


Louder than gulls the little children scream

Whom fathers haul into the jovial foam;

But others fearlessly rush in, breast high,

Laughing the salty water from their mouthes— Heroes of the nursery.

The horny boatman, who has seen whales


And flying fishes, who has sailed as far

As Demerara and the Ivory Coast,

Will warn them, when they crowd to hear his tales,

That every ocean smells of tar.


~ R. Graves
