Seashore Scene

 

And daylight turns to starlight.

A hush across the sea.

The seagulls cease to screech,

And that way they shall be

Until the morning comes,

And the sun like fire lights

The vast, reflecting waters,

And the gulls return to flight.

I can hear the waves now crashing

Against the stony shore.

And mist blows damp around me

As the waves reach evermore

Across the shining ocean

And bring from far-off reaches

Fine and settled sands,

Which are tossed against the beaches.

The sand is soft beneath my feet,

The salty air does dry my face.

And as I stare in wonder,

I am loath to leave this place

Where all of nature's beauty

Is condensed into one single

Rushing, endless seascape,

Where the crests of waves do mingle.
