3: Abend am Ostseestrand

What an evening, what a sunset!
Skies that shine above and brood below
in deepest purple, pink and red
that deepen the ships’ silhouettes –
I’ve stood there too, there on that beach,
admired that same, well-known sea,
watched fire crackle by my feet
and heard the waves come roll to me –
what memories, what memories!
My native ocean calls to me
through canvas, paint and history.
