Fern & Oak


Take me to the sea...

Take me to the sea
Lay me down into the salty waves
Rolling and swelling and soothing
I will float as I dream
And the water will heal me

Take me to the sea
With tiny shoals of silvery fish
Darting and flickering and glittering
I will smile as they tickle
And my heart will be free

Take me to the sea
Blanketed in the vast stretch of blue
Majestic and mighty and magical
I will stretch out over the ocean
And the ocean will shrink into me

PoetryEmily Mulroney
