I stroll along the seaside in my mind

And watch the repetitious waves, rise and decline,

I know their crashing sounds can soothe a raging soul.

Why? --- I don't know, I don't know.

 

I watch the graceful gulls cut the sky

I would love to be there with them

If growing wings would let me try.

I feel my spirit rise, and I sigh.

 

A Sandpiper dances at the shore

Seeking daily treasures from the sand.

He's hopeful and determined at his core.

Will he find empty shells, or something more?

 

I've conjured up a dog on my beach

The happy mutt is chasing shadows on the waves.

He's having fun, I do declare. I wish that I was there

Instead of watching shadows in these caves.

 

Yes, I stroll along the seaside, in my mind

Then I watch the movement of the waves, for a time.

Those sounds have often calmed this raging soul.

Why? --- I don't know, I still don't know.
