They say the sea is cold, but the sea contains

the hottest blood of all, and the wildest, the most urgent.

 

All the whales in the wider deeps, hot are they, as they urge

on and on, and dive beneath the icebergs.

The right whales, the sperm-whales, the hammer-heads, the killers

there they blow, there they blow, hot wild white breath out of the sea!
