A Common Melody (poem)

A melody upon the sea

A silent voice that called to me

What did it bode it would not say

But from its spell I could not flee

-

That no one heard caused some dismay

Perhaps this fate was meant this way

That only I could feel the sound

While other people felt their day

-

So to the ocean I was bound

My thoughts were spinning so profound

What secret was awaiting there

What symphony makes my heart pound

-

Sweet music seemed to fill the air

And to all else I’m unaware

Till I then kissed the promised shore

To find what fortune had to share

-

But then the music was no more

Just faces wond’ring what it’s for

What set us drifting to this place

What special need did sea restore

-

And there it was upon each face

A special smile a special grace

That shared this common memory

That somehow vanished but this trace
