My Heart Sees Not Or Hears

Written by: Ashley Lowery

I hear the song of the ocean,
It wafts beyond the dune;

It floats along across the sands
And ebbs and flows in tune.

I feel its rhythm of motion
In the breeze blowing in;

And the dancing seagrass floweth
To its gay lyric spin.

I hear the song of the ocean,
Sweet notes upon these ears;

It beckons with soft white hands,
But my heart sees not or hears.

It is lost unto the notion
of love that might have been;

It beats its rhythm and knoweth
No greater song hath men.
