Tempest The Ocean...

'The Kraken' by Alfred Lord Tennyson
Illustrations by Katie Broderick 

Below the thunders of the upper deep; 
Far far beneath in the abysmal sea, 
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep 
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee 
About his shadowy sides; above him swell 
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height; 
And far away into the sickly light, 

From many a wondrous grot and secret cell 
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi 
Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green. 
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie 
Battening upon huge seaworms in his sleep, 
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep; 
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
