Beyond the Sea


I had a dream that felt so real,

as I sailed with white sails

beyond the Seven Seas.

I heard how the waves laughed merrily,

and the seagulls were my fellow travelers.

 

At last I arrived to the last shore

and the sand was pure white,

with full of pearls like gems of the Sea.

The waves were singing happily as I got ashore

there I stood and my heart filled with wonder!

 

The trees grew there, strong and high,

I saw a cherry blossom trees

and delicate flowers of pale pink.

Flowers were of many kind

red, purple, white and yellow.

The mountains reached to the heaven

and clouds as white crow on its head!

 

There I stood and my heart filled with joy!

 

There rivers and streams were flowing free,

water was crystal clear with bluish-green!

There was a fair maiden, dancing free

and she said;

 

‘I shall sing to thee!’

 

Her hair long and fair, bright as the day,

and she spoke again, with voice so clear

 

‘No need to sorrow, weary voyager,

here thou shall have rest for a while!’

 

So I fell asleep as she sang to me,

and the waves murmuring silently,

when the twilight settled down upon me.

 

Then I woke up, and I saw the last shore

shimmering far away, beyond my reach

and for a long time I sat in silence,

my heart torn with grief.

  

At last I broke to speak as my heart turn weak;

 

‘Farewell now, the last shore which is

beyond the reach of mine mortal soul!’

 

‘Farewell now, fair maiden of elven kin,

and the last shore where she is running free!’

 

‘Farewell now, fair maiden of elven wise,

thy eyes as stars shine, O beloved maiden of mine!’


***


'If you could see into the depths of my very soul, you would hear how the waves murmur silently and you would see the dormant sea'.

"I heard how the waves laughed merrily,

and the seagulls were my fellow travelers." good personification. helps me imagine the water. when I write about the ocean, I paint it as a monster engulfing its victims, enticing people to come into its refreshing waves
