SHE SANG TO THE SEA


SHE SANG TO THE SEA


In olden times, long before,
A girl ran along the shore,
And sang to the sea a song…

But no one could see
How wondrous were
The songs of the sea.

It made the little girl
Laugh heartily,
She burst into laughter
At that shore…

And the boundless,
The deep blue sea
With laughter
Started to roar…

    Nostalgic but the the soul of the sea and the girl....perhaps the same one as reflected through the writing. Yet they had tied each other with two different identities. Good poem. Lucid but a clean philosophy peeps through its simplicity. A question yet haunts....what does the little girl do now...does she yet laugh with sea's laughter...does she yet sing with the same tune.... Or now she writes poem now! ! ! 10/10

    There's a real e e cummings feel to this Tsira - a sort of musical naivity which is most appealing. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    A girl ran along the shore,
    And sang to the sea a song
    ---------------
    the song goes deeper into the sea heart and awakes a little fish. The girl falls in love with a fish and goes every day there to meet him. one day a sailor kills the fish and offers him to the girl.
    the girl sang the same song seated on a pew, holding the fish. both travelled into the earth's womb. (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
