    For in this yellow grave of sand and sea
    A calling for colour calls with the wind
    That’s grave and gay as grave and sea
    Sleeping on either hand.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    But the twelve lie in the sand by the dry rock
    Seeing nothing—the sand, the tree, rocks
    Without number—and turn away the face
    To the mind’s briefer and more desert place.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
