Grains


Oh grains of sand, sand of our sea shore
Sand that moulded my grandfathers.
Moulded them to be rich and strong
Moulded them to be pure and true
We are grateful

Oh grains of sand, sand of our sea shore
Sand that moulded my grandmothers.
Moulded them to be articulate and dignified.
Moulded them to be caring and strict
We are grateful

Oh grains of sand, sand of our sea shore
You who moulded my children
Moulded them to be vibrant and obedient
Mould them to know that they are but grains of sand.
We are grateful.

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,
