The Sea-Woman: Robert E Howard

Posted on: 28 April 2007

The wild sea is beating
Against the grey sands;
The woman, the sea-woman,
Stretches her hands.Her eyes they are mystic
And cold as the sea,
With slender white fingers
She beckons to me –

There are woods in the sea
Though the leaves are all grey,
The ocean’s pale roses
Lift dim in the spray.

I follow – I follow –
The grey sea-gull flies –
Ah, woman, sea-woman,
There’s death in your eyes.

He does use words so beautifully. The pics are nice too:)

There was so much more to Bob than Conan wasn’t there?! Thank you for sharing, as always.

His poems are even more poignant when you think how his life ended.

That was some sort of special timing, looking at your post today!!!
Thanks Ann X

As always I am astonished, he was such an amazing writer.

Thanks Ann for sharing these
