The sea is a friend of mine;
For when she comes along,
She makes her ripples dance for glee
And sings a splendid song.
Down close beside her I can watch
The silver sails unfurl,
And every rolling, tumbling wave
Upon the shore uncurl;-
They make wide mirrors for the sky
And zig-zag ropes of sand,
To mark the farthest edges where
The water touches land.
At night the moon a pathway makes
Across the spreading Sea;
It must be for the Sea's mermaids and small mermen and me.
It leads straight from its skyward end
To ripples at my feet,
And sometimes I perchance may trip
Along the golden street;
I'd like to visit with the moon
And walk the Milky Way,
And linger with the little stars-
If the golden path would stay!
