And You Will Never Know

The ocean murmurs to the beach
And all the grains of sand,
“There’s so much that you’ll never see
Upon your wisp of land.
You’ll never know how dolphins play
Deep in the ocean wild
Or how a floral tapestry
Blooms underneath beguiled.”

The grains of sand in turn reply,
“And you will never know
How beautiful you are to us
Caught in your afterglow.”
