|ASK ME WHY THE SEAGULLS CRY|
They watched us walk together, hand in hand
The gold dust underneath our feet, no longer sand
The gentle ocean breeze whispers your name to me,
and mine to you
Above - the seagull circle, a most fantastic view!
We climbed the jagged, black, wet rocks
Our kingdom you proclaim,
And now you crown us King and Queen
The Ocean, our domain.
They watched me walk alone now, my head held low.
The sand is merely sand, where did the gold dust go?
The gentle ocean breeze forgets our names now,
and sings instead a sad, sad song.
I climbed the jagged, black, wet rocks
Our lovely kingdom - Gone.
Now ask me why the Seagulls cry.

|It's as beautiful now as the day I read it in a teenage paperback novel in the mid 80s.|
The mental picture is breathtaking and heartbreaking. I give credit to the original author for the stunning words she wrote that has stayed in my mind, word for word, since I was so young.
