3rd Place (Child) - June 2012


By the Sea, By the Shore,
My heart tells me, "Give me more."
With the salt on my lips,
And the waves with the spume at their tips,
And the dim figure of the rock at sea,
Which shall there forever be,
Hear the wild gull crying,
In harmony with the sea's eternal sighing,
And the waves each other chase,
Where the land and sea embrace.
