From Shingle Street
To Orford Ness
The waves maraud,
The winds oppress,
The earth can’t help
But acquiesce
For this is east
And east means loss,
A lessening shore, receding ground,
Three feet gone last year, four feet this
Where land runs out and nothing’s sound.
Nothing lasts long on Shingle Street.
