Seven Seagulls and Smiling Clouds

She is standing by the sea
In the sunset she is with me
Silver seagulls and smiling clouds
Waves bring precious gifts to smooth love sounds

We built castles for the night
She took hold my hand and stepped inside
Seashell symphony secluded shores
Silhouetted strangers cloaked in sea and stars

Then it thundered and decided to rain


With a new day, came a new wave
Laughing at our castle, laughing at our way

She saw it coming and she strode away
Sunrise in her hair
I sat and watched it ‘til it fell away
Seven seagulls scavenged there

Then it thundered and decided to rain

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
