When I am a wave--a soft, white wave--I will run up
from ocean's purple spheres, and murmur out my low sweet
voice to one alone.
I will dash down to the cavern of gems and life up to
his eyes Beauty that will drink light from the Sun!
I will bring blue banners that angels have lost from the
clouds.
Yes, I will be a wave-- a happy, dancing wave--and leap
up in the sunshine to lay my crown of spray-pearls at his
feet.
