First the tide rushes in,
plants a kiss
on the shore,
Then rolls out to sea
and the sea
is very still once more.
So I rush to your side
like the oncoming tide
with one burning thought,

Will your arms
open wide?
At last we're
face to face,
And as we kiss through
an embrace,
I can tell, I can feel,
you are love,
you are real,
Really mine in the rain,
in the dark,
in the sun,
Like the tide at its ebb,
I'm at peace in the web
of your arms.
Few things are more exciting
than touring the decks of a
mighty battleship!
Few things are more peaceful than walking along a gorgeous beach
in the autumn!

The Chesapeake Bay -

A mighty wonder to behold!

My Favorite Things

Words by Oscar Hammerstein II
Music by Richard Rodgers

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
Door bells and sleigh bells
And schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winter that melts into spring
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't bad
