At the foot of thy crags, O Sea!
But the tender grace of a day that is dead
Will never come back to me.“

„Light breaks where no sun shines;
Where no sea runs, the waters of the heart
Push in their tides“

—  Dylan Thomas Welsh poet and writer 1914 - 1953
Context: Light breaks where no sun shines; Where no sea runs, the waters of the heart Push in their tides; And, broken ghosts with glow-worms in their heads, The things of light File through the flesh where no flesh decks the bones.
