When The Moon Rose Over The Sea – Summer Term 1917

The golden path had faded away
With the dying light of declining day
And the rocking ripples ceased their play
When the Moon rose over the sea.
And an evening hush filled all the air,
Yet music and song were everywhere.
And the seaweed shone like a sea-nymph’, hair
When tile Moon rose over tile sea.
And the silver gulls came floating by
And a star shone out in the purple sky
And Beauty and Peace a’er the earth did lie
When the Moon rose over the sea.
