Beyond
PeggyParis

I watch the waves that lap the shore
 1
and wonder what they’ve seen.
 2
Sometimes they sound a mighty roar
 3
or whisper when serene.
 4
 
 
If waves could tell us of the lands
 5
whose coasts they’ve viewed from sea,
 6
or of the lovely beaches' sands
 7
they’ve washed so carefully,
 8
‘tis then we’d grasp the secrets known
 9
to waters of the deep
 10
and mysteries of Neptune’s throne
 11
that lie in ocean’s keep.
 12
 
 
I hear the waves that lap the shore
 13
in ripples foaming white.
 14
These waters bid me to explore
 15
all that may lie in sight.
 16
 
 
When moonlight sends its fairest beams
 17
to grace the calmest sea,
 18
the glisten on the surface seems
 19
to dance in jubilee.
 20
As constellations fill the sky
 21
and dark of night, the land;
 22
my mind can only testify
 23
to wondrous feelings grand.
 24
 
 
I touch the waves that lap the beach
 25
in shades of green and blue
 26
and love the way they always reach
 27
much farther than my view.
