The Ocean Wave

 My impatient heart keeps me relentlessly restless
Like mercury agitation is the essence of life to me

Wave is my name, the sea is fordable to me
The whirlpool's circle would never be a chain to me

My steed speeds in the water like wind
The fishing tackle has never caught my skirt

Sometimes I jump up due to attraction of the full moon
Sometimes in excitement I strike my head on the shore

I am the traveller who loves destination
Someone should ask me why I always jump

Fleeing from the discomfort of the narrow river I am
Upset by separation from the ocean's vastness I am
