Great start. I'm left wondering what the pursuit of a naked woman has to do with the incomprehensible pain of living. Mr. St. John's experience must be very different from mine.

"Song" is a provocative poem that raises the question of why the speaker doesn't find the love he is seeking at home with wife and family. St. John demonstrates that, whatever is missing in them, is incomprehensible and the sea doesn't care how driven they are.
