Till my Bones Break

A flitting flipper's sudden flutter
Sometimes causes me to stutter
The ocean's beauty and its rage
Hurries me to turn the page
Even with a weary heart,
I'm captive by the surfers' art
Every day until I'm lone
And waves have broken every bone
I'll stumble seaward with my pride
And drop it all to chase the tide
