Listen To The Ocean 01.08.2009


.................Nina and Frederick

Living my life to the accompaniment of
a song in my heart, I mostly remember
the refrain, hubby and the kids live in
perpetual discontent as I keep singing
the refrain playing in my head

Looking up lyrics on the Internet to learn
the words, maybe then I will be allowed
to sing my songs at home, my favourite
is ‘Listen to the Ocean’ by Nina and
Frederick

Turning like a broken gramophone in my
head, over and over, enchanting rhythm,
words divine, melody sublime: ‘Listen to
the ocean, echoes of a million seashells,
forever it's in motion

Moving to a rhythmic and unwritten
music that's played eternally…’

LISTEN TO THE OCEAN
Nina & Frederick – 1960
(Nina Möller / Frederick Von Pallandt)

There's a world of sun and sand, full of
sky and far from land, where evening
breezes caress the shore like a gentle
comforting hand

Fragrant blossoms, honey bees, careless
laughter upon the breeze and lovers
fading to pools of deep purple
shadows among the trees

Listen to the ocean, echoes of a million
seashells, forever it's in motion, moving
to a rhythmic and unwritten music
that's played eternally

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
