Arvia’s Song // a character poem

beach dawn dusk ocean

Good morning friends! (:

A couple weeks ago, I was brainstorming for a writing project and was stumped on the plot, when the first few lines of this poem formed in my mind. It’s a poem of my main character, Arvia who grew up on the edge of the sea with only a small fishing village near by. I had never written a poem for or based off of a character before, so it was a first and I found it fun.

I hope you enjoy it!


 

Arvia’s Song

To the sea! To the sea!

    Where the birds are off calling,

        Off soaring,

              Off hopping,

        Head-cocking.

        Where the boats off sailing,

                Are gliding,

                        Are hoping,

          And docking.

 

To the sea! To the sea!

        Where the seashells are sliding,

                Are glistening,

                        Are winking,

        Sand-sinking.

        Where the waves pound,

                And make the sound,

                        Of rushing to their job of

    Feet-licking.

 

To the sea! To the sea!

        Where the wind blows,

                And I know

                        At the sea

There my home waits for me.

  1. Agh! I love this!! I’ve always had an obsession with the sea; there’s something so wistful and sad about it, and I actually got chills reading this! (And can I just mention how cool it is that your wrote a poem for your character?!😊)
