In the moonlight, shadows dancing
By the sea the night sings lovely
Melodies that cast a knowing
Warmly soothing that engulfs me
Surely there could be no other
Place on earth that’s near so charming
As the sea

It can cause a heart to flutter  
By the shore the night’s disarming
As the moonbeams dance so brightly
On the waves that roll and tumble
Then surrender ever gently
To the deep and I'm made humble
By the sea

In this place of rare discover
I can refuge from all trouble
For the shadows warmly cover
Me and calm the heart of tremble
Shadows, you’ll be gone by daylight
Moonlight charm's for night romancing  
By the sea

Shadows dancing in the moonlight
In the moonlight, shadows dancing
Dance with me




 Denise

And slight is the sting of his trouble
Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

I don't buy temporary insanity as they murder defense. Because
people kill people. That's and animal instinct. I think breaking
into someone's home and ironing all their clothes is temporary
insanity.

I'm dancing, I'm dancing!  

Wonderful work, Denise -- a lovely ocean scene you painted for us here, and all awash with dancing shadows and moonlit waves.  What could be better?  

--Kess


 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...

Hey "D",

Very soothing poem.  I can actually hear the wind blowing and the waves gently crashing onto the sand.  Very nice imagery.  I liked this one alot.
