A very Old Ocean Poem............

I found this  a while back, a poem I wrote when I was just 18.  I'm surprised at how it still rings true for me.  


Think of this song
this song in you
     what is it?
What is this music you are,
     think of this song in you

standing at the mouth
     mouth of the ocean at dark
into the darkness this song
     the ocean makes

this song 
it passes you, through you
it is not your own

you are a part of it
