I am so glad my life began
Close to the ocean’s magic span
All seasides bring great joy to me
I’ve spent my life next to the sea.
For I have been in Jersey born
And loved its waters night and morn
I’ve spent my childhood playing by
The edge of lakes or brooks nearby.
The sound of water seems to me
Like some majestic symphony
There’s never in my life a day
The water’s not a walk away.
To me the choice is matter small
If leafy pond or waterfall
Some stream meandering about
Or bubbling spring with water spout.
Now I’m a Pisces, water sign
Two little fishes unaligned
While one swims up, the other down
Whatever happens we don’t drown !
