PEARLS

Spring or fall
Fall or spring

How deep and
Irresistible is the ocean
Waiting prostrate
Rivers run to her from ice tops

In oily back streets
Shuckers find pearls
But never her

Mighty is the ocean
And our wine sweet
And tall masts in the harbour
Are trees on the sea
And we'll sip on the sweet
And sit by the shore
Wharf water gold as honey
Where the white yachts moor

The ocean is the mother
Without her the earth is dust
Her virtues are legion
The reason for all seasons

Spring or fall
Fall or spring
