I spied a glistened heart shaped shell, when lapped by oceans ebb and flow
Its movement ‘twixt the strands of kelp caressed my sole as I strolled by
With many more ahead if I should wish to choose afore I go
Yet once again my gaze was drawn to loving form which caught my eye

Now cupped in hand I wondered of its journey, how it came my way
As briny formed in rivulets upon my palm in salted tears
From land afar or island home, I dared to dream of life this day
Wherein perhaps the feel of warmth as held may banish all my fears

I lay upon the golden grains of sand which held my mind enthral
When glimpsing of a shadow formed by rays of light at water’s edge
A maiden fair did seem to me in hurry to escape my call
Perchance I heard intention of her longing, heartfelt, whispered pledge

In holding to my ear in hope of revelation for to find
A message shaped and carried on the breeze contained within
Hands across the sea, in loving friendship of forever kind
Sculpted by Minerva’s kiss in verse, with strains of Menuhin
