Oh mournful sea,
To whither, withdrawing thy skirted waves in flounces,
Brides departure be?
New horizons unrelenting tender hearts,
Venture in naivete,
Willing fragment to absorbing varsity,
Thy love insistent on hope to ever after tales,
Where dreams canst be,
If not Ophelia then rescued Rapunzel she.
