For generations, poets have taken inspiration from ocean mists and rugged coastlines to conjure up adventures on the high seas and joyous days at the seaside. From Emily Dickinson’s morning dog walks by the shore to the river running through Sara Teasdale’s sunny valley, and from Walt Whitman’s fish-filled forests to the silent ships passing in Paul Laurence Dunbar’s dark ocean, there are poems here for every reader to enjoy.
