Her face meets the breeze
On a deep summer night.
And like a ghost upon the water
Her voice beckons the maestro, moonlight.
The waves crash around her in applause
And her dress presses to her form
The ocean song begins
On a July night so warm.
The dark, black sea - her audience -
Quiets under the night sky.
The Moon spotlights her face-
There's such a twinkle in her eye.
With each breath of salty air
Her voice becomes so clear
She is a preformer of the night
Under the stars she shows no fear.

Wonderful vision, moonlight. We can easily imagine ourselves onstage while standing at the rail on the water at night. Star among the stars.

Very eloquent, with a touch of romanticism...

Can I have her number...???

So let the sun beat down upon my face,
It's warmth will dry my tears.
