Isles Of Wonder
Come! Come with me yonder.
Dream with me now as I ponder.
Follow me to the faraway lands,
To the isles of the burning sands.
Walk with me where breakers roar,
And waves beat on a rocky shore.
Stand with me on the crumbling cliffs.
Feel the breeze as it blows and shifts.
Let the ocean air fill your very soul,
Watch the waves as they onward roll.
Breathe deeply of the vesper winds,
Hear the cry that the seagull sends.
Tell of ships that missed their goals,
Ruined by rocks and sandy shoals.
Listen to tales that are often told,
Forget not the lives the waters hold!
Look up through the gathering night!
A lighthouse shines, a hopeful sight!
Turn not my eyes, or let me careless be,
Nor let me miss the wonders of the sea…
