Oily Weather was published in Hemingway's collection, Three Stories and Ten Poems (1923), retrieved from Wikisource.
The sea desires deep hulls—
It swells and rolls.
The screw churns a throb—
Driving, throbbing, progressing.
The sea rolls with love
Undulating its great loving belly.
The sea is big and old—
Throbbing ships scorn it.
