The Roar Of The Ocean - Poem by Francis Duggan

Before the first skylark did take to the wing
And in the clouds above his breeding grounds did sing
And before the first flowers bloomed in the warmth of Spring
The rumble of the ocean was a familiar thing
Forever and in that I mean forever more
It's huge waves will splash on the rocks by the cliffs of the shore
From a gentle lapping sound to a rumble it's voice can quickly grow
How old is the ocean would anyone know?
Thousands of centuries before the first humans learned to walk upright
And from the woods ventured into the sunlight
The mighty surf waves were rumbling and foaming frothy spray
As they crashed on the rocks that protected the bay
It has inspired writers to story and rhyme
The roar of the ocean that's older than time.
