The voice of the sea speaks to the soul.
The soul was like a Star, and dwelt apart:
Thou hadst a voice whose sound was like a sea:
Pure the naked heavens, majestic, free,
So didst thou travel on life's common way,
In cheerful godliness.
The sound of the sea,
the curve of the horizon,
wind in leaves,
the cry of the bird leave manifold impression in us.
Out of the rhythm and sound of the sea that beat.
The eternal sound of the sea on every side has tendency to wear away the edge of human thought and perception...
When you're happy,
you enjoy the music.
But when you're sad,
you understand the lyrics.
Play the music loud,
and in sweet harmony,
our misery will drown.
