How gently darkness lays itself upon the restless sea,
While breezes scented cool and clean, are blowing wild and free.
When moonlight's blush fades gradually and hides its ash white face,
A thousand candles dimly lit, now frame the soft embrace.
All through the night with spirits bright as shameless dreams unfold,
'till sunlight makes the darkness break to show the story told.
Tempest waters calm and smooth, stillness now the sea,
Sky and water bound in love-- as lovers, you and me.
