Angels must have stooped to kiss thy shores; Love must drop her blessings as she soars O'er thy stately dwellings, hills and rocks; Neither lets Dame Romance leave thy docks. Riverside, California, Jan. 19, 1924. NEPTUNE'S GARDEN By Wiilard Marsh Way down in the depths of the deep blue sea, Where the flying fishes play, In old Neptune's garden, a submarine Arden, Are parks like on land, they say. So we go for a trip on the glass-bottom ship, Out past the Lovers' Cove, And we gaze as we pass, through the bottoms of glass, On the groves where the goldfish rove. Far down in the sea it's as bright as can be, As glares the great white light, Which lights up the park where the lobsters spark, And the eels stay out all night. We see grass that is white, fish equipped with a light, There purple feathers grow; And the trees swing and sway in a wonderful way, Where the breezes never blow. Bright colors are seen, yellow, purple and green, With red, and many more; But the color way down is rich golden brown, With amber on the floor. ]n the rocks in the park are caverns so dark, Where the fish stream in and out, As they do on the land at our own Porter's Band, And chat all the time, no doubt. Once more on the shore; as ] think it all o'er, If I could have my wish, I'd go down below and tell them, "Hello!" And give my respects to the fish. Avalon, September 1st, 1923.
