By the sea....

The Sea Spirit
Lucy Maud Montgomery
I smile o'er the wrinkled blue­
                                     Lo! the sea is fair, Smooth as the flow of a maiden's hair;
And the welkin's light shines through 
Into mid-sea caverns of beryl hue,
And the little waves laugh and the mermaids sing,
And the sea is a beautiful, sinuous thing!

When moonlight glimmers dim
I pass in the path of the mist,
Like a pale spirit by spirits kissed.
At dawn I chant my own weird hymn,
And I dabble my hair in the sunset's rim,
And I call to the dwellers along the shore
With a voice of gramarye evermore.

I scowl in sullen guise­
The sea grows dark and dun,
The swift clouds hide the sun
But not the bale-light in my eyes,
And the frightened wind as it flies
Ruffles the billows with stormy wing,
And the sea is a terrible, treacherous thing!

 And if one for love of me
                                          Gives to my call an ear, I will woo him and hold him dear,
And teach him the way of the sea,
And my glamour shall ever over him be;
Though he wander afar in the cities of men
He will come at last to my arms again.

 everything loves the sea

one of the most beautiful beaches in the world
