Ocean's Lullaby

There are none of love's daughters
That are as lovely as thee;
Like the ripple of still waters
Is your sweet music to me.
Then the murmur was causing
The wild ocean's mad pausing;
And the waves lay still gleaming
While the ebb tide rose dreaming.

The moonshine is weaving
Bright silver beams on the deep;
With the waves gently heaving
The grey gulls fast asleep.
So the stars shine before you
And the wind sighs to adore you;
With a song so full of emotion
Like the surge of the ocean.

    This is so beautifully written Lizzie. You've created an awesome picture and your rhymes are perfectly created. I can hear the waves of the ocean in the far distance. You are such a talented writer. Thank you for sharing this artistic work.

    A beautiful poem, rolling and heaving as if it were the ocean itself. Sweet music to an ocean lover. Love the line 'the wild ocean's mad pausing;'.
