The Sea-King. by Madison Julius Cawein

1

In green sea-caverns dim,
Deep down,
A monarch pale and slim,
Whose soul’s a frown,
He ruleth cold and grim
In foamy crown:
In green sea-caverns dim,
Deep down.

2

He hears the Mermaid sing
So sad!
Far off like some curs’d thing,
That ne’er is glad,
A vague, wild murmuring,
That drives men mad:
He hears the Mermaid sing
So sad!

3

Strange monster bulks are there,
That yawn
Or roll huge eyes that glare
And then are gone;
Weird foliage passing fair
Where clings the spawn:
Strange monster bulks are there,
That yawn.

4

What cares he for wrecked hulls
These years!
Red gold the water dulls!
Grim, dead-men jeers
On jaws of a thousand skulls
Of mariners!
What cares he for wrecked hulls
These years!

5

Man’s tears are loved of him,
Deep down;
Set in the foamy rim
Of his frail crown
To pearls the tear-drops dim
Freeze at his frown:
Man’s tears are loved of him,
Deep down.

6

Here be the halls of Sleep
Full mute,
Chill, shadowy, and deep,
Where hangs no lute
To make the still heart leap
Of man or brute:
Here be the halls of Sleep
Full mute.

Quotes About Karma

“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.”

– Mary Browne

“If you’re really a mean person you’re going to come back as a fly and eat poop.”
– Kurt Cobain

“With free will, we can modify, to a certain extent the chain of karma that has been set in motion by the karma of the previous moment. That is what free will really is, the ability to alter the sequence of karmic fate.”
– Frederick Lenz

“One must know not just how to accept a gift, but with what grace to share it.”
– Maya Angelou

“Our deeds determine us, as much as we determine our deeds.”
– George Eliot
