A Talisman by Marianne Moore 

Under a splintered mast,

torn from ship and cast,

near her hull, 

 

a stumbling shepherd found

embedded in the ground,

a sea-gull,

 

of lapis lazuli,

a scarab of the sea,

with wings spread - 

 

curling its coral feet,

parting its beak to greet

men long dead.
