The sea and I - Part II

Then today.... the menacing music of the storm whistling across the sea...  

"I scowl in sullen guise­

The sea grows dark and dun...

The swift clouds hide the sun
But not the bale-light in my eyes,

And the frightened wind as it flies
Ruffles the billows with stormy wing,
And the sea is a terrible, treacherous thing!" 

And the little waves laugh and the mermaids sing,
And the sea is a beautiful, sinuous thing! 
Lucy Maud Montgomery


  1. What a wonderful mini vacation you are on. I have always loved the ocean in all her different moods, from sunny and happy to dark and sullen. The sunny days are for walking along the sand with a light and joyous spirit. The cloudy days call more to quiet introspection. Both have an almost hypnotic appeal.
    Enjoy the rest of your trip.
