On Burnham Beach, On The Tide She Comes

Wish you Were Here
Grey Stratus blanket roofed the sky
Like wings of angels passing by
The celestial beam lit the way
Beyond the waves where Mary lay
She comes each day to catch the tide
That trapped and snared her joy and pride
At water's edge he used to play
On Burnham beach in ocean spray
The stock dove roar from Western knoll
As Mary stalks another soul
Dead Icy hands caress small feet
And one more tragedy repeat
The mighty surge began to rise
As fear and panic polarize
She Lures with gifts of pearly shells
Enticing kids with tricks and spells
Awaken from her miry grave
A hunter waits beyond the wave
A human child the spirit crave
The one she lost and could not save
'twas on this day one year ago
A pain no mother should endure
When folly reap the tidal wrath
She took a dark and endless path
From Burnham beach to ocean wide
Horrified, how the people cried~
They say she's drifttng with the tides
Beneath the salty brine she hides
