The Sign of the Seahorse

I had found this piece of poetry on a bookmark long ago in England. I love the fishy illustration as well as the poem, quoted below with permission from Graeme Base’s publishers. Check out his website and other references below.

Beyond the
ken of mortal men,
beneath the wind and waves,
There lies a land
of shells and sand,
of chasms, crags and caves,
Where coral castles
climb and soar, where
swaying seaweeds grow,
And all around
without a sound
the ocean currents flow…

From “The Sign of the Seahorse”
