Carmel-by-the-Sea's Poet Emeritus - Robinson Jeffers described it best:
Divinely Superfluous Beauty
The storm-dances of gulls, the barking game of seals,
Over and under the ocean …Divinely superfluous beauty
Rules the games, presides over destinies, makes trees grow
And hills tower, waves fall. The incredible beauty of joy
Stars with fire the joining of lips, O let our loves too
Be joined, there is not a maiden
Burns and thirsts for love
More than my blood for you, by the shore of seals
while the wings Weave like a web in the air
Divinely superfluous beauty
- Robinson Jeffers
