And the tide rises, the tide falls. Darkness settles on roofs and walls, But the sea, the sea in the darkness calls – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 Come, possess these shores with me; The wind and seas are troublesome, And here we be free! – Samuel Daniel

We have lingered in chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with sea-weed of red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.

-T.S. Eliot

Stars open among the lilies. 
Are you not blinded by such expressionless sirens? 
This is the silence of astounded souls.

-Sylvia Plath

I would comb my hair till my ringlets would fall
Low adown, low adown,
From under my starry sea-bud crown
Low adown and around,
And I should look like a fountain of gold
Springing alone
With a shrill inner sound. 

– Alfred Lord Tennyson

Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes:
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.

– Shakespeare – The Tempest

Then stirs the feeling infinite, so felt in solitude, where we are least alone. – Lord Byron
