i go down to the shore

i go down to the shore _mary oliver

i go down to the shore in the morning

and depending on the hour the waves

are rolling in or moving out,

and i say, oh, i am miserable,

what shall-

what should i do? and the sea says

in its lovely voice:

excuse me, i have work to do.
