A Stroll on the Beach, Michael Peter Ancher (1896)
A Stroll on the Beach
Sea as quiet as can possibly be,
Listening but wind so still can’t be heard,
Nor the many birds which hover the sea,
Amongst us barely was spoken a word.
The still brought a quietness to each heart.
Ever so thankful to share cherished time.
Knowing at next sunrise we all must part.
This captured precious moment so sublime.
This best of time knows no special season.
To see and to touch is ample enough,
Beyond this need not another reason.
All are silent as parting will be tough.
Sharing deep friendship is beyond compare,
Once again together is their prayer.
