poem from a film 'The Last Sunset'

I am trying to find the author of the following verse from a western film 'The Last Sunset' It was quoted by Kirk Douglas. It is not in the original novel.


Dream of seahorses and they'll come.
Not many people know of it; not many people care,
but the sea is a place where the seamen shoe the hooves of the wild sea mare. Not many men have seen it or caught the faintest gleam
of the ice green cave in the deep green sea in the heart of the cold sea stream,
but the sea mare hides her young sea colt wrapped in a shy sea dream.
But probably all the people know and can absolutely say
that the foam on the sea is the sign that you see the mare and her colt at play.

It may have been written specially for the film - they often are.

Thanks for the reply. I wondered if it was written for the film but it seemed so unusual for a Western. I thought it might be Edgar Alan Poe but can't find it by him. Maybe the author liked his style.
