“White-crested waves crash on the shore.

The masts sway violently, every which way.

In the gray sky the gulls are circling like white flakes.

Rain squalls blow past like gray slanting sails, and blue gaps open in the sky.

The air brightens.

A cold silvery evening.

The moon is overhead, and down below, in the water; and all around it-a wide frame of old, hammered, scaly silver.

Etched on the silver-silent black fishing boats, tiny black needles of masts, little black men casting invisible lines into the silver.

And the only sounds are the occasional plashing of an oar, the creaking of an oarlock, the springlike leap and flip-flop of a fish.

(“The North”)”
