Ode to the Sea

Here, surrounding the island
there's sea.
but what sea:
it's always
says yes then no,
then no again, and no,
says yes in blue
in sea spray, raging,
says no and no again.
It can't be still:
It stammers "My name is Sea" ...
 (from the poem Ode to the Sea by Pablo Neruda. Written in the Aeolian Islands, featured in the film: Il Postino).
