Nine Waves

Thomas A. Clark

came the nine joys
with the nine waves
with the nine joys
of the nine waves
and the nine waves
of the nine joys

the first wave to meet you
the second wave to lift you
the third wave to balance you
the fourth wave to carry you
the fifth wave to farther you
the sixth wave to enjoy
the seventh wave to rock you
the eighth wave to prepare you
the ninth wave to deliver you
