When Sally was only three

She was brought to live by the sea;


When Sally was only three,

She gave her soul to the sea;


Her little toes sinking in golden sand

She would gaze in wonder at the blue expanse;


And made crowns of shells

For her long fair hair;


Sally rode on the waves

With the surf on her face;


The splash of blue on her legs

As the sun would caress her hair;


Then a young man from land

Came to claim Sally’s hand;


The date was set

And the guests there met,


But they waited in vain

Even through the rain


Sally wanted to be

One last time with the sea;


But her jealous lover the wide wide sea,

Embraced her and took her away from here;


They say sometimes when the wind is strong

You can hear Sally singing her joyful song,


With a crown of shells

And a veil of mist

on her beautiful golden hair.

This is such a beautiful tale, but a very sad ending. But at least Sally got to be with her friend the sea. Thank you for sharing.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie
