Memories of the sea wash over me on days when clouds are drifting cottony above my head through placid azure sky. Such images flit like a butterfly across my mind; I seize them gratefully! They bring with them sweet thoughts of family and times of which I now can testify flowed out like tides to leave me by and by. . . memories of the sea. How young we were in days so summery! Through waves we leapt, expending energy. Sated, we lay sunning on the beach to dry, till sunlight - like our youth - sank down to die. But I will keep for an eternity memories of the sea.
